Description

UNCOVERING AN INDIGENOUS TORONTO

The name of our city is derived from the Mohawk word Tkaronto, meaning "a gathering place". Toronto is home to over 70,000 indigenous residents, one of the fastest growing population groups in the city. Yet our history, culture and contributions remain largely unseen. In this spirit, the Tkaronto Project invites you to hear from the people working to uncover an Indigenous Toronto.


Tuesday, June 27th 2017 @ 6:30pm
Sears Atrium, 245 Church St, 3rd floor
