Indigenous Sovereignty Week Oct24-31

National Indigenous Sovereignty Week site – www.defendersoftheland.org/isw

Indigenous Sovereignty Week is a pan-Canadian event intended to deepen the commitment of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people for justice for Indigenous Peoples. The Ottawa Working Group will offer a range of discussion forums, cultural activities, educational opportunities and opportunities for action as a first step in solidifying relationships and localizing the struggle. Please come out and explore ways that you can join those who wish to address our colonial history and work for a sustainable future.
