Indigenous magazine Red Rising expands into Vancouver

A Winnipeg-based quarterly magazine serving indigenous people launched its fourth issue in Vancouver on Saturday at the Vancouver Aboriginal Friendship Centre.  

Red Rising magazine is run by a volunteer group of indigenous youth from Winnipeg Treaty 1 territory. The new  issue is themed "Storytelling as Resistance".                     

In an article carried by News 1130, co-founder Lenard Monkman says the magazine intends to bring together indigenous stories and perspectives; they are looking for artists and writers from all over Canada. The magazine has already published three issues and plans to have a fifth one out in February.
“There are a lot of Indigenous people that are going through exactly the same kinds of things across the country,” Monkman says.
In a way, he says, people on the West Coast may remember Red Wire magazine, which was published for a time in the '90s.
“It’s sort of a continuation of that but we’re bringing different perspectives — we’re living in a little bit of a different time but a lot of the issues that were happening 20 years ago are still very much the same as they are today.”
