The Uniter Speakers Series and Grass Routes: A Sustainability Festival present "Life in the City of Dirty Water," a conversation with Clayton Thomas-Müller.
Life in the City of Dirty Water, a transmedia storytelling project, is an expression of decolonization and healing. Think of it as a survival guide to the urban Indigenous person.
These are stories of colonization and displacement of Indigenous Peoples from our sacred land. Stories of colonial trauma and healing. Of feeling the pull of Creator and working to stop the destruction of Mother Earth. These stories are a man telling his inner child, “I’m here now and I’m going to keep you safe. I’m going to hold you close when there’s violence and nobody’s going to hurt you. This is my responsibility."
Clayton Thomas-Müller is a member of the Treaty #6 based Mathias Colomb Cree Nation also known as Pukatawagan located in Northern Manitoba, Canada. Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Clayton is the ‘Stop it at the Source’ campaigner with 350.org. Clayton is an organizer, facilitator, public speaker, and writer on Indigenous rights and environmental and economic justice.
Doors at 7:15 p.m. // event at 8:00 p.m. This event is free and open to all ages.
