Organized by Barriere Lake Solidarity (Toronto) & OPIRG-Toronto

Hear firsthand from members of the Algonquins of Barriere Lake (the Mitchikanibikok Inik) about how Canada and Quebec are trying to terminate their nation -- and what the Algonquins of Barriere Lake and their supporters are doing to stop them.

WHEN: Monday, November 1st, 7pm-9pm
WHERE: Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), 252 Bloor St. West, Rm. 5280
HOSTED BY: Barriere Lake Solidarity (Toronto) & OPIRG - Toronto

The Algonquins of Barriere Lake are a small First Nation community in northern Quebec, part of the Algonquin Nation. They are a tough people - among the last Algonquins to maintain their own language, their traditional economy, traditional knowledge and traditional governance after centuries of colonialism. The community has always had a clear understanding that their survival as a people depends on maintaining their language, their relationship to the land, and their way of life. And crucial to defending these and transmitting traditional knowledge is their traditional form of government.
