Indigenous Insights

Thu. Feb. 23 09:00 AM - Thu. Feb. 23 04:00 PM

Indigenous Insights was created with the engagement of Indigenous people including academics, professionals, political activists and community members. As Canada continues to acknowledge the place of Indigenous Peoples within this country, this training will help build an understanding that goes beyond the headlines and examines the truth for Indigenous people today. When we understand our shared history more completely, we better understand each other. Indigenous Insights clarifies commonly held misconceptions about the Indigenous Peoples of Canada providing an overview of Indigenous Peoples’ history, cultures, and relationship with Canada.

The seven-module, full-day program guides participants through a consideration of the meaning of reconciliation. Each module includes a video of 8 to 13 minutes in length, featuring interviews with Indigenous experts from across Canada, and moves participants into facilitated conversations about such topics as treaties, Indigenous identity, and residential schools.

The facilitator of this workshop is Christine M’Lot (BA, BEd, MEd in progress ), an Anishinaabe educator from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Christine is currently pursuing her master’s degree in World Indigenous Studies at Queen’s University and is focusing her research on traditional theories and practices of wellness in Indigenous societies.

The workshops are arranged through the office of the Associate Vice-President, Indigenous Engagement, and generally cost participants $100. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will cover the cost of participation for up to 25 graduate students on a first-come, first-served basis.
