    6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Documentary Screening: In Her Sarong
    This short documentary will take you to Malaysia where Laurier Brantford Digital Media and Journalism grad Shazlin Rahman investigates the legacy left by her late maternal grandmother, Mok—as a young girl in the British-ruled Malay peninsula, as a young mother in newly-independent Malaysia and, up until her death, as a grandmother to a predominantly female brood of grandchildren. She takes a closer look at Mok's former life as a maker of batik sarongs and the resilience of present-day women batik makers in east coast Malaysia. In trying to preserve Mok’s legacy, Shazlin discovers what strength, beauty and resilience looks like for Malay women like herself, and brings home lessons on life as a racialized Muslim woman living in Canada.

  • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Friends and Neighbours lecture series: Dave Levac

    Dave Levac, the retired MPP and legislative speaker, will share his observations on residential schools and Indigenous issues at a lecture in Brantford on Oct. 16. Levac, who grew up in Brantford near the former Mohawk Institute residential school knew little at the time about the school and was shocked as an adult to discover what had been going on in his own community. He'll also talk about his experience of discovering as an adult that he has Indigenous ancestors.

    Levac was first elected as Brant MPP in 1999 and was re-elected four more times until retiring this year. He was elected Speaker of the Ontario legislature in 2011 and by his retirement was the province's longest-serving speaker.

    The lecture will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. in Room RCE 004 in the Research and Academic Centre of Laurier Brantford at 150 Dalhousie St. The lecture is sponsored by the Friends and Neighbours Group, a grassroots committee of volunteers supporting the Woodland Cultural Centre's Save The Evidence Campaign. This is the second of the group's 2018/19 lecture series, presented in association with Laurier Brantford.

    The goal of the lecture series, titled Revealing The Truth, is to educate people and promote a community dialog about the former Mohawk Institute Indian Residential School and reconciliation. The Mohawk Institute, on Mohawk Street in Brantford, operated as a residential school from 1828 until its closure in 1970. Save the Evidence is a capital campaign to raise awareness and support for the repair and renovation of the Mohawk Institute building. Its goal is to ensure the physical evidence of the dark history of residential schools in Canada is never forgotten. After its closure in 1970, the former Mohawk Institute reopened as the Woodland Cultural Centre, which operates as a museum, gallery, and cultural hub for indigenous history, language, education, art, and contemporary culture.

    The Save the Evidence campaign has received support from Six Nations Elected Council, the City of Brantford and the Province of Ontario, as well as from individuals and organizations
