This event takes place on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. The Kanien’kehá:ka are the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. The island called “Montreal” is known as Tiotia:ke in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and it has historically been a meeting place for other Indigenous nations, including the Algonquin peoples.
Continuing an annual tradition, several Montreal-area social justice organizations committed to anti-colonial organizing and action, are presenting this evening of food, film and resistance. We have decided to cease using the term “Thanksgiving”. We are making this change as a way of distancing ourselves from colonial settler myths, and rather position our gathering in a tradition of anti-colonial education and resistance.
This event is co-organized by Frigo Vert and QPIRG Concordia with the support of People’s Potato, Midnight Kitchen, Food Against Fascism, submedia.tv, and the Concordia Student Union (CSU).
