With an opening address from Lee Maracle, drumming by Shandra Spears-Bombay and rattle dance by DJ Danforth, this event will feature spoken word performances and round table discussions from the book contributors, followed by a screening of “The Road Forward”, dedicated to the countless First Nations women who have “disappeared” on British Columbia’s “Highway of Tears”. More information about “The Road Forward” can be found here: http://www.reddiva.ca/?p=557
Proceeds from the evening will go to a scholarship fund created for the children of missing and murdered Aboriginal women.
