February Virtual Book Club – To Be a Water Protector

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Front cover of To Be A Water Protector

Wednesday, February 22, 7:00pm

Looking to expand your reading list and discuss a variety of issues and topics important to Native people? If so, please join our virtual book club, As They Speak: Native Voices in Today’s Literature. Based on a variety of topics and featuring a range of genres, all of the books we will be reading have been written by contemporary Native authors. This month, in support of the Abenaki Arts and Education Center’s traveling exhibit Nebizun: Water is Life, currently on display at IAIS, we will be reading and discussing “To Be a Water Protector: The Rise of Wiindigoo Slayers” by Winona LaDuke (Ojibwe). Winona LaDuke is a leader in cultural-based sustainable development strategies, renewable energy, sustainable food systems and Indigenous rights. In this book, LaDuke honours Mother Earth and her teachings while detailing global, Indigenous-led opposition to the enslavement and exploitation of the land and water. Join the virtual conversation hosted by IAIS Staff on ZOOM.

 In order to have a more intimate conversation, space is limited.
