Title: Tracing the Cultural Significance of Monarchs

Presenter: Columba Gonzalez-Duarte (University of Toronto, Anthropology PhD Candidate)

This webinar will trace the historical and contemporary cultural significance of the Monarch Butterfly in North America. Based on her research for the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, Gonzalez will present a broad range of human cultural practices that use, or used, the monarch for symbolic purposes. This iconic insect has been embedded in practices such as rituals, ancestral territories, human rights movements, and even in tri-national political agreements. Humans of different cultures perceive this butterfly in different ways, and the webinar will review some symbolic uses among Mexican indigenous groups, Native American groups, butterfly amateurs, and professionals. Get ready for a seminar that explores the inter-dependence of nature and culture through the journey of this charismatic insect.
