Iroquois Social with Kanen'to:kon Hemlock


Event details

You're invited! Artist and Aboriginal Curator Lindsay Delaronde is hosting another Iroquois Social at Open Space Tuesday, July 24 from 6-8pm. 

If you missed the last one (held in May), this is your chance to gather for a lively celebration of community, food, song, and dance. The evening will begin with a talk by Kanen'to:kon Hemlock, a Mohawk community Bear Clan Chief from Kahnawake. Kanen'to:kon Hemlock is a teacher of language, culture, and history at the Kahnawake Survival School and current grad student at the University of Victoria.

The talk will be followed by a community potluck—folks are encouraged to bring a dish to share from their cultural background. After a hearty feast, Lindsay will lead us in songs and dances.

Kids, elders, and everyone in-between welcome!
