“Back by popular demand! It’s the Second Annual: “My HEROES Have Always Killed Colonizers: Stories of Global Indigenous REZistance”
— a night of song, words, and resistance, a celebration of every global indigenous warrior who’s been labeled a terrorist, unpatriotic, and/or savage while defending the land, the people, and our traditional ways. Through storytelling, spoken word and performance we will collectively Re-Indigenize our heroes, such as Leila Khaled, Boukman, Lapu-Lapu, Toy Purina and Geromino so that they may claim their true role in history.
October 14, Indigenous Peoples Day, is reclaimed from the genocidal legacy of Colonizer Colombus. Join us this night, as we ask “Which colonizers have your heroes resisted?”
Doors open at 5:30pm. Early arrival is suggested as last year’s event was sold out!
