From the Chairs

Thank you for entrusting us with the task of delivering a NASFiC to remember, the first hosted outside of the U.S. We are proud to welcome you to Canada’s heart: Winnipeg. Science Fiction has always been a mosaic of styles and types: alternate history, mystery, future worlds, apocalyptic, fantastic, military… and Canada has always been a mosaic of peoples from many parts of the globe. Pemmi-Con hopes to show you the mosaic that is First Nations, Metis and Canadian Science Fiction. And, maybe, just maybe, we could do a programme on making pemmican: dried meat which would be traditionally bison but could be moose, caribou, deer and even beef, pounded and then mixed with an equal amount of melted fat, and various berries; how to keep your hunger at bay when on the hunt for new things.

— Robbie Bourget & Linda Ross-Mansfield, Co-Chairs

At Pemmi-Con, we acknowledge we are gathered on Treaty 1 Territory and that Manitoba is located on the Treaty Territories and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline and Nehethowuk Nations.
We acknowledge Manitoba is located on the Homeland of the Red River Métis.
We acknowledge northern Manitoba includes lands that were and are the ancestral lands of the Inuit.
We respect the spirit and intent of Treaties and Treaty Making and remain committed to working in partnership with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people in the spirit of truth, reconciliation, and collaboration.
