Delegation to Turtle Island

Unmasking and Dismantling Settler Colonialism

August 10 - 20, 2024

For over twenty years, CPT has organized solidarity and peacemaking delegations to Treaty 3 territory in Northwestern Ontario, to the Asubpeeschoseewagong Netum Anishinabek (Grassy Narrows First Nation). CPT initially responded to the community’s invitation in 2002 for nonviolent accompaniment of their blockade of clearcut logging without community consent. We continue to support Grassy Narrows as the community resists mining and logging proposals, and campaigns for reparations for mercury poisoning.

This delegation will do a deep dive into the historical and current realities of colonialism and explore ways we can get involved in the decolonization process. In addition to visiting Grassy Narrows, we will meet Indigenous community leaders and allies in Winnipeg and Kenora. Through this delegation we will explore themes such as environmental racism, class oppression, police and prison abolition movements, Indigenous solidarity, and allyship.
