QUYON May 26, 2019
On May 26, around 40 Pontiac residents gathered at the Bert Kennedy Centre in Quyon for a two-hour presentation on Anishinaabe Algonquin history and its effect on the current issues of our society.
Hosted by the Friends of Chats Falls, the presentation centred mostly on long-time systemic issues affecting Indigenous Canadian’s quality of life to this very day, including the implementation of status cards, the impact of residential schools on community development and a reflection on the Indian Act of 1876 and its archaic laws that remain in effect.
