The Capitol Theatre presents its 6th annual INDIGENOUS CULTURAL CELEBRATION:

As a cultural cornerstone in Nelson, the Capitol Theatre has played an integral role in fostering culture and community engagement through its programming for the last 30 years. During this time, the theatre has embarked on multiple collaborations and more recently has specifically engaged with the community through projects that embrace inclusivity, artistic expression and the subject of reconciliation. Each year the Indigenous Cultural Celebration event provides the opportunity for local and regional Indigenous dancers, storytellers and musicians to participate in this event and extends an invitation to the community at large to engage in the conversation of reconciliation, to show respect to all Indigenous people throughout the region and to support the acknowledgement of traditional territories in this area.

Tanya Talaga: Rights before Reconciliation is a Selkirk College event and part of the Truth and Justice Speaker Series co-presented with Indigenous Services, the Mir Centre for Peace, the Capitol Theatre and School District 8.

- This event will be held online via Zoom - ***Online ticket sales will stop at midnight on Mar. 3rd.*** ONLINE TICKET PURCHASERS WILL RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL WITH YOUR TICKET. A 2ND EMAIL WITH CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS AND A ZOOM LINK WILL BE SENT TO ALL TICKET HOLDERS 1 DAY PRIOR TO THE EVENT

It has been five years since the Truth and Reconciliation Commission issued its groundbreaking report, one that promised sweeping changes. But is that what we are seeing? After Wet’su’weten, Black Lives Matter, the Mi’kmaq fisheries dispute, and, delays on the implementation on a national action plan to help stop the genocide of our Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls, where do we find hope?

Join Selkirk College in welcoming Tanya Talaga for her talk, Rights Before Reconciliation.

4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
