REDTalks: Wisdom Keeper Series (online)

with Senator Murray Sinclair and Lee Maracle

May 20th, 2020 at 2pm on Zoom


During this special 90-minute online REDTalk, join Senator Murray Sinclair, author and activist Lee Maracle, and Red Sky artistic director and moderator Sandra Laronde as they delve into the COVID-19 pandemic from an Indigenous perspective and context.

While we quarantine at home, nature is starting to restore itself, and a greater balance can be felt. Is this our opportunity to reconnect with the ecology of Indigenous values as a way forward? Could this be the first step towards living in balance with all living beings? Is meaningful transformation on the horizon?

Our online “Wisdom Keeper Series” is part of Red Sky Performance’s REDTalks Series, which celebrates exceptional Indigenous artists, innovators, and leaders. REDTalks drives ideas, mobilizes action, and serves as a catalyst for social change.

Murray Sinclair is a member of the Canadian Senate and First Nations lawyer who served as Co-Chair of the Aboriginal Justice Inquiry in Manitoba and as Chief Commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Lee Maracle is a poet, novelist, storyteller, and activist on issues pertaining to Indigenous people.

Sandra Laronde is an arts leader, creator, and the Executive & Artistic Director of Red Sky Performance.
