Haudenosaunee author Rick Monture will be the guest of honour at a celebration releasing his new book “We Share Our Matters: Two Centuries of Writing and Resistance at Six Nations of the Grand River” at the Woodland Cultural Centre this Thursday.
In this new work, Monture takes a unique look at the Haudenosaunee people and how individuals such as Joseph Brant, Pauline Johnson and Robbie Robertson expressed their Haudenosaunee worldview, sovereignty and responsibility to those faces yet to come.
“After more than two centuries of political struggle Haudenosaunee thought has avoided stagnant conservatism and continues to inspire ways to address current social and political realities,” says a press release in anticipation of the books official launch.
The entire event will be live streamed by Thru The Red Door productions. Doors open at 6:30 pm and goodminds.com will be set up to purchase your copy and have it signed by Monture.
This event is a joint initiative between McMaster’s Indigenous Studies Program and the Woodland Cultural Centre.
