We are the Writing Revolution in Place Creative Research Collective! Over the past six years we have worked around the city: Boyle Community Services, The Learning Centre at Abbotsfield, HIV Edmonton, Stanley Milner Library, University of Alberta, and this term, we are working at Highlands Library on 118th. As creative researchers, poets, student, as companions & seekers of truth we are always in the act. We are never static. We share opinions and encourage one another to challenge standard accounts of histories & cultures. We seek to unveil lies and deceit & why they have tried hard to be hidden. This year we invite you to join us as we read our collaborative, creative, poetic research drawn from our exploration of Treaty Six and this year’s 140th anniversary of the Papaschase adhesion to Treaty Six. What was the original intention of Treaty Six? What was the the role of the adhesion in Treaty 6? Why did the Papaschase lose their federal reserve? What are our Treaty obligations today? How can we properly and actively honour Treaty Six and the Papaschase people today? How can we be on this land in a good way?
