Truthsgiving Virtual Festival 2021
A virtual festival dedicated to amplifying Indigenous Resistance, community care, and food sovereignty.
Truthsgiving is a one-day virtual festival taking place on October 17, 2021, from 3 to 8 pm. Coined by Indigenous activist Sikowis, aka Christine Nobiss, “Truthsgiving” is a recognition of Indigenous resistance, the unlearning of false beliefs around the history of Thanksgiving, and the dismantling of colonial-imperialist systems that continue to oppress and dispossess Indigenous communities. For this second iteration of Truthsgiving, the Art Gallery of York University will partner once again with artists-activists Amoya Reé, Keosha Love, and Jayda Marley in a call for action in support of Indigenous resurgence, land reclamation, and liberation.
This event will have an ASL interpreter & Peer Support Worker available throughout the event.
