About this event

Location: UBC Botanical Garden Reception Centre

Truth and Reconciliation Workshop: Join us in person to deepen your intercultural understanding of First Nations in Canada through a Truth and Reconciliation.

Instructor Brad Marsden from the Gitksan Nation, British Columbia, creates an open and safe space for groups to learn, listen, understand and discuss the impact of residential schools and colonization. Students, Staff and Faculty are welcome to participate as part of the UBC Faculty of Science to further the goals of the Indigenous Strategic Plan.

The goal of this project is to increase the collective understanding and capacity of UBC Science to understand the lived experiences of Indigenous Peoples as well as to learn about colonial Canadian narratives that impact Indigenous communities.

Brad’s workshop is an important early step in connecting the Faculty of Science with the goals of the Indigenous Strategic Plan. We aim to include the Science Community in participating in the valuable learning journey of Truth and Reconciliation.
