Book club webinar #3

Thursday, January 4, 2018 - 19:00

Unsettling Canada is a book written by Arthur Manuel and Grand Chief Ron Derrickson that details decades of struggle for Indigenous rights in Canada at a local, national, and international level. Organizers of Unsettling Canada 150, a group formed to bring attention to these struggles, called on Canadians to read and discuss this book to gain a better understanding of Canada’s colonization of this land. The Council is launching a monthly book club webinar on the book – each meeting will cover three chapters.

Our third meeting:

Thursday January 4 at 8PM EASTERN TIME

We’ll meet via teleconference. Please dial in to 1-888-289-4573 with the code 6234362.

Please remember to mute your phone when you are not speaking to reduce background noise.

This time we’ll be discussing chapters 7-9. These chapters focus on what economic leadership can look like in Indigenous communities, the personal challenges and sacrifices leaders go through, and how Art and others used Canadian systems (ex: supreme court, land management negotiations) to prove Indigenous sovereignty.  Lots of meaty stuff to discuss here!

All are welcome to join this book club whether you have joined a previous call or not. Please forward this message through your chapters so folks can join if they want to!

Please join us for this thought-provoking conversation.

You can borrow the book from your local library, or buy it from local vendors like Between the Lines. Learn more about Unsettling Canada 150.
