The Town of Oakville is proudly partnering with Grandmother’s Voice again to present Planting our Seeds 2.0: Resurgence of the Indigenous Voice. This series celebrates Indigenous culture and community, as well as encourages critical discussions about historical and contemporary issues facing Indigenous Peoples.
Led by local urban Indigenous leaders, the first virtual session of Planting our Seeds 2.0 begins Wednesday, November 9 from noon to 1:30 p.m. to coincide with Treaties Recognition Week. Speaker Faith Hale will launch the series by opening up conversation about treaties, as well as the current climate of Urban Indigenous Voices and matters within Halton and Ontario.
The free series will continue every Wednesday throughout November using the Zoom online platform from noon to 1:30 p.m., with an in-person session beginning at the orange crosswalk in downtown Oakville at Thomas and Church streets on Wednesday, December 14 (time to be determined) to offer authentic insight into Indigenous peoples perspectives and experiences both locally and globally.
