Saturday Key Note Speaker – Chief Robert Joseph (Reconciliation Canada Ambassador)

In the era of the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action - including calls for universities to act - we ask symposium attendees and presenters to consider the following theme: 'Revitalizing, Remembering, and Retelling for Reconcili-Action'. This year the Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium (IGSS) invites submissions that explore transformation through 'Reconcili-Action' by thinking about how research interacts with the TRC Calls to Action and how this process shapes research and experiences in the academy.

Indigenous graduate students or graduate students whose research relates to Indigenous scholarship in any discipline or across disciplines. We look forward to sharing multidisciplinary presentations and networking with student colleagues from near and far, in a comfortable, supportive community of scholars. Please send question to grad.sage.ubc.ca. See you on March 10!

Hosted by the IGSS Planning Committee & SAGE (Supporting Aboriginal Graduate Enhancement)

Simon Fraser University, The University of British Columbia and SAGE Partnership
