Dialogue #5 – Guests of Lekwungen: Urban Indigenous Experiences in Canada (Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)
Victoria Conference Centre, Carson Hall, 2nd Floor

Urban people living in Lekwungen territory are not people of the Lekwungen lands. Yet as Indigenous people in Canada, they are often displaced from their own homelands through the process of colonization, including the sixties scoop and other colonial practices. This Dialogue will share stories that highlight the experiences of Urban Indigenous people living in Lekwungen territory and the diversity of Indigenous experience. There will also be live musical performances. 

The series is free to attend and will be webcast live. All are welcome. Free childminding will be available (up to two hours) and complimentary refreshments will be provided.
