500+ YEARS OF NATIVE RESISTANCE

Saturday, December 1 at 4PM

  Columbus didn't discover america.

Today, in spite of 500+ years of a genocidal colonization, there are an estimated 40 million Indigenous peoples in the Americas. Despite this, Indigenous peoples lack control over their own lands and comprise one of the most exploited and oppressed layers of the population; characteristics that are also found in other Indigenous populations throughout the world.

  

The ANSWER coalition would like to invite you to a public forum featuring indigenous leaders and activists from the community addressing the issues of sovereignty of indigenous people and the effects of colonization on a people struggling for their rights to self determination.
