We are excited to share an exciting exhibit that is coming to Toronto in February. Dispossessed but Defiant: Indigenous Struggles in Canada and Palestine is a series of professional photographs depicting the history of Indigenous peoples in Canada, and Palestine, with powerful images and text weaving together the stories of the two peoples. The photos are themselves moving testaments to both the extent of repression exercised by the forces that colonized those two regions and the determined resistance to the invasion and occupation of their lands by each of the Indigenous groups. Assembled from a wide range of historical sources and interpreted with the help of experts, the exhibit tells a compelling story. Each section contains images that evoke the painful experience of the dominated people and their determined opposition to it.
The exhibit will be at the Mary Ward Centre at Loretto College, University of Toronto, 70 St. Mary Street from February 24 to March 6, 2020, open Monday to Friday from 12:00 to 7:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
