Event Details

Beneath many major North American cities rests a deep foundation of Indigenous history that has been colonized, paved over, and, too often, silenced. Few of its current inhabitants know that Toronto has seen twelve thousand years of uninterrupted Indigenous presence and nationhood in this region, along with a vibrant culture and history that thrives to this day.

In this special panel discussion, TPL gathers contributors to the newly released Indigenous Toronto: Stories that Carry this Place. Chef Johl Whiteduck, visual artist Philip Cote, author/playwright Drew Hayden Taylor and creative director/arts presenter Denise Bolduc discuss the cultural continuity and settler colonialism that have come to define Toronto as a significant cultural hub.
