Indigenous Perspectives on Canada150: Risk + Reconciliation

  • Manitoba Hydro Place

There has been significant controversy about the federal government’s ​celebration of ​the ​​​150​th anniversary of confederation, with hashtags like #Resistance150 and #Colonialism150 spreading across social media. While some Indigenous leaders have opted out entirely, others approached engagements as a platform to raise awareness about resiliency and contemporary indigenous identity. Spur explores the risks ​in celebrating ​reconciliation, by asking members of Winnipeg’s Indigenous community, what does Canada150 mean to you?​

Speakers to be announced very soon!
