Generation Indigenous Presents: “We Are All Treaty People”

February 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Generation Indigenous presents:
WE ARE ALL TREATY PEOPLE
“GENi: This Is My Story” is a speaker series consisting of four events that will take place over a period of four months on Treaty 7 territory and in Calgary, AB. The four events will weave a narrative analogous to how Elders pass on the story of their tribes and nations to the next generation. This narrative will be focused on including the current and future generations of young Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and will look forward to reconciliation between all Treaty People. As Elders pass on knowledge to the next generation through sharing of stories and traditions, today’s generation signals a new era, sharing pain and pride, wearing our histories proudly on our backs.

This event welcomes all people from all backgrounds. Feel free to share this event!

The first event in the series entitled “We Are All Treaty People” will explore treaty rights and collaborating as treaty people. Refreshments will be provided so please bring reusable dishware!

Speakers:
Stoney Nakoda Nation- Thomas Snow
Metis Region 3- Michael Broadfoot
Tsuu Tina Nation- Hal Eagletail
Kainai Nation- Lindsey Red Crow
Piikani Nation- Lowa Beebe
Siksika Nation- Clarence Wolfleg (Elder) or Miiksikaam (Red Crane).
