The 2018 CBC Massey Lectures – “All Our Relations” by Tanya Talaga

October 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Prize-winning journalist Tanya Talaga (author ofSeven Fallen Feathers) explores the legacy of cultural genocide against Indigenous peoples — in Canada and elsewhere — in her 2018 CBC Massey Lectures, All Our Relations: Finding the Path Forward.

For Tanya Talaga, that cultural genocide has led to a forced disconnection from land and language by Indigenous peoples. The need now, she says, is for Indigenous self-determination in social, cultural and political arenas. Many communities, in Canada and abroad, are finding that the road back to a relationship with land and language are keys to community healing — to what in fact it means to be Indigenous.

These are lectures about values for our times, and for all of us.

The book version of the lectures is published by House of Anansi Press.

Lecture 1: Tuesday, October 16, 7:00 pm – Thunder Bay
Venue: Thunder Bay Community Auditorium, 1 Paul Shaffer Drive
Through the generosity of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) this will be a free event, a community celebration with Indigenous and civic leaders for the first of the 2018 CBC Massey Lectures. No tickets are necessary — everyone is invited.
