Reparations and Indigenous Land

August 31 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Reversing Hall 4 Leighton Point Road
Pembroke, ME 04666 United States

$25 – $50

A call for reparations has been made by Black, Indigenous and People of Color, for the redistribution of land, wealth and resources. Five hundred years of colonialism and white supremacy on Turtle Island (aka "North America") have concentrated power in the hands of those considered white, disrupting the interconnections between, and natural flowing of life within, human and more-than-human communities. Reparations are a framework for balancing what has been taken out of balance; an on-going act of solidarity toward the liberation of all living beings. Please join us and Douglass DeCandia for a gathering to deeply analyze the complex of white supremacy, to “map” the resources we each have access to (resources, time, land, money, social capital, technical skills, etc.) and to mobilize these resources toward Black, Indigenous and People of Color led organizing for self-determination and sovereignty on land.

Eastport Arts Center (EAC) 36 Washington Street
Eastport, ME 04631 United States

Eastport Arts Center will present a concert by singer/songwriter and musical storyteller Alex Smith on Saturday, August 31 at 7 pm, presenting a delicious pairing with the day’s city-wide Salmon and Seafood Festival activities. Smith grew up in the heart of New York’s Adirondack Park, and his music strives to echo the culture of that area, building songs from a blend of traditional folk harmony and modern lyrics. Writing about contemporary concerns while paying homage to his region’s musical roots, Smith draws on the triumphs and hardships of friends, relatives and neighbors to create fictitious characters who teeter on the balance between beauty and imperfection.
