REDTalks: An Evening with Bea Shawanda
Tuesday, April 24, 7pm
Verity, 111 Queen Street East
A robust and extraordinary storyteller and culture keeper, Bea Shawanda (Odawa-Pottawattomi) is from the Manitoulin Islands. On April 24, Bea will share her experiences as an ex-student of the St. Joseph Residential School in Spanish, Ontario, contributing to creating a legacy of fortitude, hope, and resilience with First Nations and Canada. She is a frontline worker with over 35 years of experience in North America in health, education, social and family development as well as organizational leadership and multi-cultural training. Bea has commissioned books and developed curriculum on these subjects, and currently heads her own human resources development/leadership training organization.
The Verity Circle on Truth & Reconciliation together with Red Sky Performance is thrilled to bring Bea to Verity members for an evening to remember.
