AMC invites you to Tea and Bannock Dialogues

Derrick Nepinak, Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) Grand Chief, is extending a personal invitation to attend a Tea and Bannock discussion at the Thunderbird House on May 31.

Registration starts at 8:00 am. 

It's all part of the grand chief's vision for an initiative to bring down the Indian Act that is The Road to Niagara.

In last month's issue of the First Nations Voice, Grand Chief Nepinak strongly outlined the reasons why he thinks the Indian Act should be scrapped but the Tea and Bannock session on May 31 at the Thunderbird House gives you an opportunity to have your voice heard.

As the AMC statement reads:

The Indian Act is a tool to assimilate First Nations into Eurocentric society. It is used to control our Nations, communities and leadership. It divides us more than anything else and we must disengage from the settler's law. 

Session 2 of Tea and Bannock will discuss how we can reclaim our traditional governance. This can be done by asserting our jurisdiction in our ancestral lands and by promoting our culture, We will hear from traditional knowledge keepers on how we can decolonize our minds and spirits.
