Description: Join us for the 9th annual Anti-Colonial Thanksgiving Dinner!
The ACT dinner brings together native and non-native people to share food, stories and deepen a political analysis of Canada’s ongoing legacy of genocide and exploitation of Indigenous people and the land. The dinner hopes to serve as a venue where attendees can continue to explore the lifelong process of decolonization on an individual basis, in the relationships we share and this land base known as Guelph.
This year’s dinner will feature four speakers: Amanda Lickers, Lee Maracale and two midwives from Seven Generation Midwives. We are very excited to share a wonderful potluck dinner with you all and hear stories focused on the theme of decolonization.
Doors open at 5:30pm, with a traditional welcome by the Guelph Women’s Drum Circle at 6:00pm.
This event is free, wheelchair and washroom accessible, and offers a variety of locally sourced meats, gluten free options as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes.
