Indigenous Culture Fund Support Rally

Keep Indigenous Knowledge, Languages and Culture Alive

Queen's Park, Toronto - Tuesday February 26, 2019 12pm - 1pm

"Language and worldview are inextricable linked and that language in the doorway to the soul of a culture.
If language and worldview are in fact interrelated, then the eroding of a language is also the eroding of a culture."
- Art Napoleon

Join our Indigenous colleagues in a demonstration to rally against the cuts to the Indigenous Cultural Fund (ICF), formerly housed at the Ontario Arts Council.

Created in 2017 as a response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC), the purpose of these funds were to “support cultural activities and programming in Indigenous communities, increasing opportunities for Indigenous people to engage in and share cultural practices, knowledge, and learning.”

Tuesday, February 26th
12:00pm – 1:00pm
Queen’s Park, Toronto
(South Doors of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario Building) 

The demonstration is being organized by Aylan Couch and Ashley Bomberry.
