Please note that this event has been rescheduled to Wednesday April 27th, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
In August of 2021 a statue of Sir John A. MacDonald was pulled down in Hamilton’s downtown; it was an action echoed across the continent and reflective of growing discomfort with colonial narratives and how they are situated in public space.
Speakers of Truth is an ongoing series of ‘kitchen table’ talks led by Indigenous activists, protectors and educators covering topics essential to Truth and Reconciliation; this month’s event will focus on monuments, monument removal, and the impacts of both.
On April 14, this group will speak on the impact of historic monuments and their removal. Speakers include:
Nathan Muir – Mohawk
Danielle Boissoneau – Aniishnaabekwe
Audrey Davis – Haudenosaunee, Mohawk, Strong Woman
Kenny Kirkwood – ally, musician, teacher
