Red Rising is a nonprofit Indigenous magazine from Winnipeg, MB. “Issue #3 “Land and Water” coming May 13th features new pieces from Christi Belcourt, Red Haircrow, Tabitha Martens & more.”
“Red Rising Magazine will have a launch party featuring Winona LaDuke at the Circle of Life Thunderbird House at 715 Main Street from 6:00 to 9:00. The event will be featuring special guest Winona LaDuke, celebrated Anishinaabekweg warrior who spoke the immortal words: “Someone needs to explain to me why wanting clean drinking water makes you an activist, and why proposing to destroy water with chemical warfare doesn’t make a corporation a terrorist.”
Entry is $5, which also gets you a copy of the new magazine. The event will feature readings from contributors to Issue #3.
With this issue we wanted to create a space for writers to share their perspectives on land and water from their respective territories to reflect the historical, contemporary and future realities, and to get people to think critically about the environments we live in.
