Thunder Bay Community Auditorium
October 16, 2018
Prize-winning journalist Tanya Talaga (Seven Fallen Feathers) explores the legacy of cultural genocide against Indigenous peoples- in Canada and elsewhere- in her 2018 CBC Massey Lectures- All Our Relations: Finding the Path Forward.
For Tanya Talaga, that cultural genocide has led to a forced disconnection from land and language by Indigenous peoples. The need now, she says, is for Indigenous self-determination in social, cultural and political arenas. And many communities, in Canada and abroad, are finding that the road back to a relationship with land and language are keys to community healing- to what in fact it means to be Indigenous.
These are lectures about values for our times, and for all of us.
Through the generosity of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) this will be a free event — a community celebration with Indigenous and civic leaders for the first of the 2018 CBC Massey Lectures.
No tickets are necessary — everyone is invited.
