September 27th, VIRTUAL SESSION, 2:00-3:15 (All employees & Students): Kanien’keha:ka storytelling with Elder Niioie:ren Patton, The Corn Husk Doll Story. The Dawson College Library is proud to sponsor this incredible story-telling event with Kahnawa:ke Elder Niioie:ren Patton. Respected Elder and knowledge keeper Niioie:ren will share this beautiful traditional Kanien’keha’ka narrative that reverberates through time to continue to instruct us in the here and now. Indigenous story-telling is a critical means of exploring Indigenous epistemologies as well as appreciating the role of oral history from Turtle Island to the rest of the world. This session is part of a month long set of events leading up to September 30th, the National Day of Mourning for the survivors and victims of Residential Schools. Events will bring awareness to the legacy of colonization across Turtle Island and the necessity of institutional decolonization as well as a focus on Indigenous Resurgence & Joy.
