The event is called (the event name box only permits 64 characters):Ripples from Standing Rock: A Teach-In & Panel Discussion on Water Protection and Indigenous Sovereignty

The Teach-In and panel discussion will be about Standing Rock solidarity and water protection more broadly. We plan to hold the event in conjunction with Rule Out Racism week (March 20-24) at UBC-O and to promote World Water Day on March 22. 

The intention is to raise awareness and generate local strategies to combat the implications of the Kinder Morgan pipeline for Indigenous peoples and the environment. 

We plan on having Indigenous water protectors from the Syilx territory and Indigenous water protectors from the Oceti Sakowin camp at Standing Rock.
