    NATIVE-IMMIGRANT presents: Beadworks: Visions of Peace Art Show-- CALL FOR ARTISTS

    Beadwork: Visions of Peace: (français plus bas) More info:  https://www.facebook.com/events/685013501644381/ An exchange of art forms about peace. Share this knowledge with the world Montreal August 5th – 15th 2015 **************************************************************** Among the Iroquois, Wampum Beads were beaded for various purposes such as recording on strings, the condolence ceremony. Wampum belts were also created to record treaty events. Most relevant to our beadwork project is the Circle Wampum, which is the constitution of the Iroquois Confederacy. The fifty strings represent the fifty "chiefs" of the Confederacy. Sha'tethonatte': they are all the same height. This is what the fifty strings represent. The "chiefs" must work together collaborative with each other, and with the clan mothers. The clan mothers work together with the people. Sha'tetionkwatte': We are all the same height. No one is above the other. This is the basis for the Iroquois vision of world peace. It is all recorded in beads, wampum beads. Our symbol, at the top of the tree of Great Peace, is the Eagle that sees afar - the eagle that we say protects the children. We wish to share this point of view with all the people of the world, particularly the Mapuche, the people of the Condor. We wish to learn their understanding of the world, and how they recorded it. Was it with beads, or with some other art form? What is the Mapuche vision of world peace? How was it recorded, and remembered. We wish to exchange art forms about peace, with the Mapuche, and if all agree, share this knowledge with the world, beginning in August, in old Montreal.” -Philip Otiohkwa Deering **************************************************************** CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Beadwork: Visions of Peace is a collaboration between Native-Immigrant, Ashukan Cultural Space and Festival de Présence Autochtones (Land in Sight Festival) Submission Deadline: July 31st at midnight Everyone can participate Visions of Peace: Traditional and non-traditional Beadwork Visions of Peace: drawing, painting, mixed media, photography and textiles.

Veuillez partager ces infos parmi vos connaissances. À Montréal, du 5 au 15 août 2015 *************************************************************** Chez les Iroquois, les perles de Wampum étaient perlées à des fins diverses, telles que l'enregistrement des événements historiques sur des chaînes et la cérémonie des condoléances. Les ceintures de Wampum ont également été créées lors des traités. Encore plus pertinent pour notre projet de broderie perlée est le cercle Wampum, qui revêt en lui-même la constitution de la Confédération iroquoise. Les cinquante chaînes représentent les cinquante «chefs» de la Confédération. Sha'tethonatte': ils ont tous la même hauteur. C'est ce que représentent les cinquante cordes. Les « chefs » doivent travailler ensemble en collaboration entre eux et avec les mères de clan. Les mères de clan travaillent avec le peuple. Sha'tetionkwatte': nous sommes tous de la même hauteur. Personne n'est au–dessus de l'autre. Ceci est la base de la vision iroquoise de la paix dans le monde. Il est entièrement enregistré en perles, les perles de Wampum. Notre symbole, en haut de l'arbre de la grande paix, est l'aigle qui voit tout au loin - l'aigle qui nous exige de protéger les enfants. Nous voulions partager ce point de vue avec tous les gens du monde, en particulier les Mapuches, le peuple du Condor, au Chili. Nous voulons apprendre leur compréhension du monde et comment ils l'ont enregistrée. Le font-ils avec des perles, ou avec une autre forme d'art ? Quelle est la vision des Mapuches de la paix mondiale ? Comment était-elle enregistrée et reconnue? Nous souhaitons échanger des formes d'art sur la paix, avec les Mapuches et autant que possible, partager ces connaissances avec le monde, débutant en août 2015, dans le Vieux-Montréal. » - Philip Otiohkwa Deering *************************************************************** APPEL DE DOSSIERS : Tissage : Visions de la paix est une collaboration entre Native Immigrant/Immigrant de souche, L'Espace culturel Ashukan et le Festival de Présence Autochtone (Terre en Vues).

    Waterloo Town Square in Waterloo, Ontario (ON), Canada

    No Line 9 Rally to Support Chippewas of the Thames Opposition to Enbridge's Proposed Changes to Line 9

    With all of the recent pipeline ruptures in Canada we need to educate ourselves to how a pipeline rupture in the Waterloo Region would impact the environment we rely on. Enbridge's Line 9 Pipeline is a 40 year old pipeline that has a life expectancy of 40 years. Yet, Enbridge wants to reverse the flow, increase the pressure in the pipeline, and transport the Alberta Tarsand's Bitumen through our region. Invite your friends and family to come out and support the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation's legal challenge to stop Enbridge's proposed changes to Line 9.

    The Black Hills Unity Concert

    The Black Hills Unity Concert is a three-day, drug, alcohol and admission free event that utilizes the instrument of music to unite Lakota/Nakota/Dakota peoples (the Pte Oyate) in the name of our sacred sites and our Mother Earth. We understand that only with increased dialogue and connection between our many sub groups can we move forward with retrieving our most sacred site, the Black Hills, and with so many other issues. The Black Hills Unity Concert is also a hub for groups and organizations, local and nation-wide, working to address social, environmental and indigenous issues including but not limited to: sacred sites preservation, youth suicide, substance abuse, environmental contamination, species preservation, cultural reconciliation, care for the elderly, traditional foods revitalization, economic development/poverty alleviation, men's and women's health, cultural revitalization and language preservation. We acknowledge the interdependence of these issues and that to heal one is to heal the other.  Frank Waln, Scatter Their Own, Good Voice Wolf, Jeremy Goodfeather, 7th Generation Rising, Nahko Bear  and so many more are currently planned to share at Unity Concert 2015 alongside many speakers and workshop leaders to make this an uplifting, educating, healing, productive and UNIFYING event.
