LIVESTREAM: http://www.spreecast.com/events/idle-to-no-more-to-indigenous-nationhood

INFO: After the tremendous response to our last Idle No More Public Forum in January, which was attended in person and online by more than 1,200 people, this follow up event will explore the next phase of INM, as we move from 'Idle No More' to an Indigenous Nationhood Movement.

Indigenous peoples and allies have gathered in flash mobs, rallies and round dances in streets and malls across Turtle Island and, now, Indigenous peoples are rising together to protect our lands and rebuild our nations. But what is at stake in this process? What does Indigenous nationhood look like? And what is required to build a lasting Indigenous resurgence movement that includes Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples?

As part of the UVic Native Students Union's Indigenous Resurgence Week 2013—a week-long celebration of Indigenous community, culture, and arts—the #F26Forum will bring together activists, thinkers, educators and community leaders to reflect on this important transitional time in the movement and to reflect on the ongoing work being done in our communities to mobilize action, education, and land defense.

SPEAKERS:
- Taiaiake Alfred (Kahnawake Mohawk, Professor, Indigenous Governance, UVic)
- Toghestiy (Hereditary Chief of the Likhts'amisyu Clan, Wet'suwet'en)
- Freda Huston (Wet'suwet'en, Spokesperson for the Unis'tot'en Action Camp)
- Dawn Smith (Nuu-chah-nulth, LE,NONET/UVic Education)
- Fred Speck (Gwawaenuk Tribe / Kwakwaka'wakw, Idle No More Organizer)

Moderator: Jarrett Martineau (Ph.D. Candidate, Indigenous Governance, UVic)
Online Moderators: Geoffrey Rankin (Beaver Lake Cree Nation) and Tobold Rollo (@SettlerColonial)

All nations and people welcome. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday for this exciting discussion.
