    Based in the territory of Treaty 18, FASTWÜRMS’ witch queer #VOLCANO_LOV3R is a primordial geo-queer liberation narrative, the super-heated witchcraft of “‘many and more," the vulcanology and libidinal economy of abundance, reciprocity, and generosity. #VOLCANO_LOV3R is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Mukwe Dodem (I Am Bear Clan) by Michel Dumont, a queer, two-spirit, Métis artist from the Robinson-Superior Treaty area.
