***The organizers of this March 14 workshop have determined to postpone until a later date. A new date will be shared and updated here in the coming weeks, and we look forward to seeing everyone then.***
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.
"South Philly in Lenapehoking" is the last of three workshops in a series. Participants will engage in conversation with members of Philadelphia’s Lenape, Taino, pan-Native, and Italian American communities and explore the impacts of Indigenous erasure through complicity with settler colonization, as well as what can be done to repair wrongdoings and support the existence of Indigenous futures.
