HABI: Weaving Stories of Migrant Labour & Indigenous Resurgence

HABI: Weaving Stories of Migrant Labour & Indigenous Resurgence

HABI: Weaving Stories of Migrant Labour & Indigenous Resurgence is a free public programming series by Kwentong Bayan Collective.

This project explores the inaugural convergence of National Indigenous People's month and the newly announced, National Filipino Heritage Month in June 2019.

In the Filipino language, "habi" means "weave" - referring to the practice of weaving, or the patterns found in woven materials. HABI is also the process by which something is kept together and made whole.

This month-long public programming series will feature three community arts workshops exploring Indigenous history, labour, migration, and our relationship with the land.

All programs are FREE and will be offered at the Small Arms Inspection Building (SAIB) located on the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation along Lake Ontario's eastern waterfront.
