Indigenous Sovereignty Week, a pan-Canadian event to raise awareness about the fight of Native peoples for self-determination, was held from October 25 to 31. Montreal hosted educational and awareness-raising events to draw attention to the issues that affect Native communities today, from ongoing instances of oppression to the denial of basic rights on reserves. The Daily attended a series of talks and workshops organized by the Defenders of the Land Network, a group of elders and youth who are leading the struggle for land rights across Canada in an effort to reach out to Montrealers and all citizens.
