SURVIVING CANADA Ottawa Launch with Kiera L. Ladner, Myra Tait, Kahente Horn-Miller, Waneek Horn-Miller and Hayden King!
Surviving Canada: Indigenous Peoples Celebrate 150 Years of Betrayal is a collection of elegant, thoughtful, and powerful reflections about Indigenous Peoples’ complicated, and often frustrating, relationship with Canada, and how—even 150 years after Confederation—the fight for recognition of their treaty and Aboriginal rights continues.
Through essays, art, and literature, Surviving Canada examines the struggle for Indigenous Peoples to celebrate their cultures and exercise their right to control their own economic development, lands, water, and lives. The Indian Act, Idle No More, and the legacy of residential schools are just a few of the topics covered by a wide range of elders, scholars, artists, and activists.
Please join us and the editors and local contributors of this book, Kiera L. Ladner, Myra Tait, Kahente Horn-Miller, Waneek Horn-Miller and Hayden King, for a discussion of this book.
