Between Sanctuary and Solidarity
Remembering Refuge: Between Sanctuary and Solidarity is an oral history archive highlighting the stories of people from Haiti, El Salvador, and Guatemala, who crossed the Canada-US border to seek refuge.
The borders between Detroit and Ontario, New York and Quebec sit on the lands of the Mwami, the Potawatomi, the Anishnabek, the Peoria, the Haudnesonee, the Huron-Wendat, the Mohawk, the St. Lawrence Iroquois, and the Abenaki.
