La Peña Cultural Center and the Free Land Project present:
THE 10TH ANNUAL THANGS TAKEN: RETHINKING THANKSGIVING
A day of art and culture celebrating Indigenous resilience
$10-$25 Sliding Scale
Thangs Taken: Rethinking Thanksgiving is an annual cultural arts event that brings artists, activists and communities together to explore the complex history of Thanksgiving and to acknowledge the legacy of U.S. colonialism and celebrate Indigenous resilience.
Produced by the Free Land Project, Thangs Taken features live music, dance, film, spoken word poetry, hip hop theater and visual art installations from Native and non-Native artists.
Grounded in grassroots activism, Thangs Taken also features leaders from local social and environmental justice organizations to provide information on current campaigns and concrete ways to take action in the community. With the arts at the center, people from diverse backgrounds gather to engage in critical dialogue and to stand in the power of our collective ability to create a world based in peace and justice that we can truly be thankful for.
Featuring Corrina Gould (Lisjan/Ohlone), Hartman Deetz (Wampanoag), Rupa Marya, Stewie G (Pomo), Indigenize the World, Justin Ancheta and more! Hosted by Desirae Harp and Ariel Luckey.
