In The Ballad of Danny Wolfe: Life of a Modern Outlaw, journalist Joe Friesen traces the early years of Daniel Wolfe’s life, from his birth in Regina to his mother, Susan Creeley, a First Nations woman, to his first brush with the law at the age of four and then his subsequent placement in foster care, to the inception of the Indian Posse—the Indigenous street gang that would eventually claim the title of the largest street gang in Canada with Danny at the helm—to his death in 2010. Spur welcomes author Joe Friesen in conversation with Dr. Diane Conrad, whose research in youth justice and arts-based intervention encourages youth offenders to redefine “at risk” and provides space for them to enact alternative trajectories for their lives.
This event will be introduced by Stephen Wilson, ED of the Graffiti Art Programming and will feature a performance by Spur Poet-in-Residence Nereo II.
