Resurgence in the "Era of Reconciliation" Panel Discussion

Resurgence in the "Era of Reconciliation" Panel Discussion
Dates: 
Saturday, March 2, 2019, 7:00 pm

A Native Students Union (NSU) x Open Space Event
 
Saturday, March 2 from 7-9pm, the UVic Native Students Union in collaboration with Open Space present an artist panel and community discussion which centres the voices of WŚANEĆ and Lekwungen artists, and seeks to shift the narrative of decolonization and reconciliation to explore topics of Indigenous resurgence and resistance in the “era of reconciliation." The panelists include artists Brianna Dick, Sarah Jim, Chaz Elliott, Charles Elliott, and Dylan Thomas.
 
This event is a part of the NSU’s Indigenous Resurgence Moon, an event series taking place over a 29-day lunar period known by the WŚANEĆ peoples as NINENE, “The Child Moon.” Our goal for this series is to promote the resurgence and reclamation of Indigenous ways of being on the unceded/stolen territories of the WŚANEĆ and Lekwungen peoples. The NSU is committed to upholding its responsibilities to Indigenous students and the community at large to support their cultural and spiritual well-being. We are also committed to providing a safe physical space for Indigenous students and community members to gather, work, study, and network. For more information about the Native Student Union and Indigenous Resurgence Moon events, visit https://www.uvicnsu.ca.
 
This is an all ages community event with light snacks and refreshments, as well as child and elder priority seating.
