A Treaty Guide for Torontonians – BOOK LAUNCH
A Treaty Guide for Torontonians Book Launch
Celebrate the official book launch of A Treaty Guide for Torontonians with authors Ange Loft, Jill Carter, Martha Steigman, and Victoria Freeman of the Talking Treaties Collective, who will share the project’s background and how the publication came to be—plus, a dramatic reading of excerpts from the book featuring actor Jesse Wabegijig, followed by a live audience Q&A.
What does it mean to be a treaty person in Toronto?
The Toronto Biennial of Art, Jumblies Theatre, and Art Metropole invite you to the book launch of A Treaty Guide for Torontonians.A Treaty Guide for Torontonians artfully examines the complex intercultural roots of treaty relationships in the place we now call Toronto, tracing the history of treaty making between Indigenous nations and between Indigenous nations and the Crown. A Treaty Guide inspires an active approach to treaty awareness through land-based, embodied learning tools that help readers ground their relationship to this history and take up their treaty responsibilities in the present.
Created by the Talking Treaties Collective of Ange Loft, Victoria Freeman, Martha Stiegman, and Jill Carter, A Treaty Guide for Torontonians is part of Jumblies Theatre + Arts’ multi-year Talking Treaties project and is supported by the 2022 Toronto Biennial of Art. The book launches on Sunday, June 5 at the closing BBQ for The Toronto Biennial of Art
