Webinar: Agnutmaqan (Stories) from Mi'kma'ki - Friday Nov 13

We rise up holding onto our children and grandchildren, looking ahead as our respective Ancestors and Ancestresses did before us, rooting ourselves in relationship with the lands, waters, and all of Creation.

On Friday, Nov. 13th at 4 pm EST, please join nêhiyaw hosts Tasha Beeds, Mide-Kwe Water Walker, and Sylvia McAdam Saysewehum of Idle No More, in an online conversation with two Mi’kmaq Land and Water Defenders: Dorene Bernard from the Sipekne'katik Nation and Tara Lewis from the Eskasoni Nation.

Registration is free but limited and required. Do register early. We are encouraging students to register asap as the event will also be open to the public. The link for registering is: http://tiny.cc/Agnutmaqan


The event will also be live streamed through YouTube if registration is missed at: https://youtu.be/_dVBqIoog2I 

We are excited and honoured to have the opportunity to have this very timely conversation. We hope to see you Friday!
