Screening of Sewatokwa’tshera’t: The Dish With One Spoon

Written by  Niki Thorne

On Friday, February 25th, just a few days prior to the fifth anniversary of the reclamation of Kanonhstaton, join us for a discussion, art making, and a screening of Dr. Dawn Martin-Hill's documentary, entitled Sewatokwa'tshera't: The Dish With One Spoon.

Background

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 begin at 7:30, followed by questions and discussion, including a discussion of the current context of the reclamation and state of land claims on the Haldimand Tract, settler solidarity, and announcements regarding anniversary events in Caledonia and at the reclamation site. Following the discussion, there will be opportunity for making art for these events (materials provided).
