Indigenous programming

Back by popular demand, From Contact 'Til Now is an interactive session that will provide participants with an experiential learning opportunity designed to strengthen their knowledge and understanding of the history of colonization and how it has affected and continued to affect Indigenous peoples today.

This presentation will include a smudging ceremony. A debrief about the exercise will follow to explain its importance and relevancy.

After attending, participants will be able to: 

  • Explain how colonization contributed to the conditions that led to three Indigenous stereotypes.
  • Compare various roles in Indigenous communities prior to and after contact.
  • Describe how the experiences of residential school survivors led to multi-generational trauma in Indigenous communities.
  • Articulate one way they can contribute to reconciliation in their role at the university.

Note: You may only register for one of three offerings of this program.

Sessions will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on:

  • Thursday, September 20
  • Monday, October 22
  • Thursday, November 22
