Abstract

Grounded in our collective experiences as guides for First Story Toronto tours, which story 13,000+ years of ongoing Indigenous presence in Toronto, we engage a discussion of some of the challenges and incommensurabilities of guiding tours that feature Indigenous Knowledge and storytelling in an urban area. We draw upon Black geographical and Indigenous futurist research and writing in order to challenge the fetishistic and voyeuristic encounters that we occasionally experience on these tours, and instead provide a tentative engagement with the potentials of slipstream movements to foster more meaningful, respectful, and consensual relationality with places and each other.
