The theme for our third cluster, hosted once more by the brilliant Sharlene Gandhi, is Indigenous Resistance Movements and the fight for water in North America. We will be exploring topics related to colonialism, climate justice, Indigenous knowledge and grassroots organising.
Session 1: Life in the City of Dirty Water: A Memoir of Healing by Clayton Thomas-Müller
Session 2: There’s Something in the Water by Ingrid R.G. Waldron
Session 3: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer
In two of the sessions we will be joined by activists with lived experience of current Indigenous movements for land and water sovereignty.
We are aiming for our sessions to be conversation-led and informal, where everyone can feel safe and empowered enough to bring their own ideas, thoughts and reflections!
Rather than reading the whole book, we'll be asking people to read a short extract and then we will use that extract to explore the topic and themes throughout the rest of the session.
