Join us for a screening of Dr. Dawn Martin-Hill’s documentary, entitled Sewatokwa’tshera’t: The Dish With One Spoon presented as a fundraiser for Tom Huff’s Hawley-Green studio – Sculpture/Culture . The film will be introduced by sculptor Tom Huff. All proceeds will benefit Sculpture/Culture. The film is free but we will be passing the basket and asking you to consider making a donation to this worthy effort.
On February 28th, 2006, in response to continuing encroachment of land, and after beginning with an informational campaign, a group of people from Six Nations blocked the development of the Douglas Creek Estates subdivision and reclaimed Kanonhstaton (loosely translated as “the protected place”). The reclamation was followed by racist backlash, often rooted in a refusal to acknowledge Six Nations rights to the land, and the history of land claims on the Haldimand tract. This documentary explores the history, events of the reclamation, the OPP raid, as well as backlash and racism.
The documentary will be followed by questions and discussion.
