Iroquois Social III
Join us for the third of Lindsay Delaronde's Iroquois Socials at Open Space!
As Lindsay comes to the end of her term as Acting Aboriginal Curator, come out to celebrate and learn in a night of music, dance, and food.
The evening will include a talk by Taiaiake Alfred of Kahnawá:ke in the Mohawk Nation, followed by a community potluck, and the sharing of songs and dances.
Folks are invited to bring a dish from their cultural background to share.
Taiaiake Alfred is a professor at the University of Victoria and was founding director of UVic’s Indigenous Governance Program. Prior to coming to UVic, Taiaiake was director of the Centre for Native Education at Concordia University in Montréal. He earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Concordia University and his MA and Ph.D. in comparative politics and political theory from Cornell University. He is the author of three books: Heeding the Voices of Our Ancestors; Peace, Power, Righteousness; and Wasáse: Indigenous Pathways of Action and Freedom. He is the father of three sons, who are all Laksilyu Clan of the Wet’suwet’en Nation.
