Coloniality is a way of naming the Eurocentric values, beliefs and ideas that sustain and justify the oppressive social structures and institutions that settlers have built on stolen Indigenous Land.
Because these values, beliefs and ideas reflect the experiences and desires of white, wealthy, Christian, able-bodied, heterosexual, male European colonizers, they function to exclude, make invisible and justify violence against all other bodies and cultures: Indigenous, Black and People of Colour, women, 2SLGBTQ+ experiences, people who live with disabilities, people who experience poverty, migrants, youth, etc.
Resisting Coloniality in Winnipeg is a series of panel conversations with local community organizers and activists who work in Winnipeg to resist coloniality in different contexts.
Zoom in during lunch time to learn about community-led, decolonial work in Winnipeg!
