Join Crushing Colonialism for an online forum:

With Indigenous peoples continuing to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, Indigenous women and Two Spirits will be celebrating sovereignty over their bodies and communities at a series of virtual seminars during National Native American Heritage Month.

“The Three Rs: Realize, Recognize, & Reconciliation” is a unique event focused on the ways in which Indigenous reproductive systems, matrilineal, and multi-gendered ways have been systematically attacked over the last 500 years. Over five days of presentations, from November 16-20, 2020, Indigenous women and Two Spirits from North and South America will be sharing their stories of resilience with a worldwide audience.

Join us for a November 18 panel at 6:00 p.m. EDT to learn about the crisis of murdered and missing Indigenous women, children, and Two Spirits and the impacts on Indigenous communities. This will include a discussion surrounding the undermining of tribal sovereignty, resource extraction and man camps, and the genocidal legacy of colonialism and rape of Indigenous people.
