¿Me Escuchas? / Can You Hear Me? Listening to Experiences of Indigenous Erasure (Workshop #2)
Sat, February 22, 2020 1:00 P.M.
There There shows how historical Indigenous erasure—the deliberate and systematic destruction of cultures and violent displacement of peoples—continues today. Join the Counter Narrative Society (CNS) and collaborators for workshops that explore the history and impacts of pan-Indigenous erasure here in Philadelphia. Dialogues will center the lived, hyper-present experiences of Lenni-Lenape today—whose traditional homeland is where Philadelphia now stands—as well as the experiences of Taino (Indigenous Caribbean) and other Native communities living in the region. Non-Native participants are invited to listen, learn, and join in collaborative conversations about healing.
"Taino in Lenapehoking" is the second of three workshops in a series. This workshop will focus on the Taino Arawak peoples who are indigenous to the Caribbean and have made huge contributions to modern society yet they and their descendants continue to experience cultural erasure, including here in Philadelphia’s Boricua community. This workshop will explore Taino culture, with conversations guided by contemporary Taino and Lenape experiences as well as by Native communities in the diaspora.
