Reconciliation: Re-Membering Creator’s First Sacred Pipe
Honouring Akikpautik and Akikodjiwan
A Panel Discussion with Albert Dumont, Lynn Gehl, Randy Boswell, and Lindsay Lambert
This panel discussion will bring together respected Algonquin practitioner Albert Dumont; Algonquin intellectual Lynn Gehl; settler ally historian Lindsay Lambert; and Professor of Journalism Randy Boswell to discuss and uncover how it is that an Indigenous sacred water and landscape, specifically Akikpautik / Akikodjiwan, located in Canada’s Capital Region just upstream from Canada’s parliament continues to be subjugated by colonial and corporate power.
Collectively this panel will explore, discuss, and uncover how this is happening within the context of the Liberal government’s political platform and rhetoric of “nation to nation” and “reconciliation”.
Only 100 tickets at $22.00 each will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
Both Albert’s and Lynn’s books will be available for purchase. Cash only please.
