About the event


FILM Premiere + Q&A

Mon Nov. 28th at 7PM

H-110 Concordia Hall Building

1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd. W.


Join Cinema Politica Concordia for the Montreal premiere of THE KLABONA KEEPERS, followed by a Q&A with director Tamo Campos and the land defenders within the film, moderated by educator, writer and researcher Kasim Ali Tirmizey. A powerful testament to solidarity filmmaking, THE KLABONA KEEPERS stays the course with a small but determined community of Indigenous land defenders in northwest British Columbia who successfully push multinational extraction companies off their land.

Admission is by donation ($5-10 suggested). The venue is wheelchair accessible. In order to prevent the spreading of COVID 19, wearing a mask at Cinema Politica Concordia events is strongly recommended.

Fundraising Day

Fri Dec. 2nd from 1-7PM

Le Frigo Vert

1440 Rue Mackay


The local unhoused population is in urgent need of donations to survive the winter and to resist against eviction notices by the SPVM. Le Frigo Vert is accepting donations. We will facilitate care package making stations at the fundraiser day which will feature a hot meal served by Midnight Kitchen Collective. Come support our unhoused neighbors by socializing with community workers, learning how to show solidarity with unhoused populations, donating at the door and helping make care packages that will distribute resources for their survival.  Co-hosted by Rising From Our Roots, QPIRG Concordia, The People’s Potato, and Midnight Kitchen Collective.


Blanket Exercise

Experiences of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. 

In 1996, the Aboriginal Rights Coalition worked with Indigenous elders, Knowledge Keepers, and educators to develop an interactive way of learning the history most Canadians are never taught. The KAIROS Blanket Exercise was the result; an interactive and experiential teaching tool that explores the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in so called Canada. It has since been offered thousands of times and the fourth edition was released in 2016.

During this 2 to 3-hour workshop, participants step on blankets representing the land and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. They are guided by trained facilitators, including Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers, who work from a script that covers pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization, resistance and much more. Participants read scrolls and respond to cues in the script. The KBE concludes with a debriefing, conducted as a talking circle, during which participants discuss the learning experience, process their feelings, ask questions, share insights, and deepen their understanding.

 Co-organized by QPIRG Concordia and Le Frigo Vert.
