Bringing to Light IRSS, Reconciliation, Indigenous Matriarchy, and Cultural Abundance
In conjunction with Jaimie Isaac’s exhibition Brings to Light, which addresses the legacy of residential schools and Indigenous knowledge and language repatriation, Gallery 1C03 is pleased to partner with the Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation to host a special public presentation by three distinguished individuals. Professor, lawyer, artist and changemaker Aimée Craft will speak about the importance of matriarchy in traditional Indigenous communities which was negated by colonialism but is now seeing a resurgence. Elder Marlene Gallagher is a residential school survivor and educator who will speak about cultural abundance and learning from the land. Educator Kaila Johnston will speak about residential schools and reconciliation on Treaty One Territory. Following their presentations there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience.
