VWF – On Belonging: Indigenous Strength and Hope in the Wake of Genocide

Event Details


How do Indigenous women and girls move forward in a country that has
allowed the race-based genocide of mothers, sisters, aunties and friends?
How can Canada disempower the colonial structures that caused this? In this
final event from Guest Curator Tanya Talaga, these essential questions are
explored by three exceptional writers whose work mines the myriad
repercussions of Canada’s abuse of Indigenous peoples—and the ways of
belonging in spite of it. Cassandra Blanchard (Fresh Pack of Smokes),
Alicia Elliott (A Mind Spread Out on the Ground) and Talaga herself (All
Our Relations) share their perspectives in this powerful, important
conversation. This is a special event of remembrance, honouring missing and
murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA (two-spirit, lesbian, gay,
bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual) people.

Donations collected on-site at this event will benefit nǝćamat, the 4th
annual DTES Indigenous Women’s Village of Wellness.

A portion of tickets are available to reserve in advance. Tickets will also
be available at the door.
