Colonialism is often viewed as a single, static event that happened long ago —“Columbus sailed the ocean blue…” –- but in actuality is a series of progressive stages that continue to be perpetuated into present day. With a specific focus on the Dene of the Northwest Territories, this seminar uses post-colonial theory to unpack Canada’s colonial past in order to illustrate how the colonial project continues to impact the lives of Indigenous peoples in the 21st century.
Please bring your lunch and join us for this session.
Indigenous Learning Objective Professional Development Session: Professional development (PD) opportunities focusing on Indigenous history and contemporary issues in Canada will be offered throughout the 2016-2017 academic year. A mixture of workshops, seminars, case studies and group discussions on a variety of topics including treaties, residential schools, the 1990 Oka Crisis, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and more will be covered. Each session is linked to at least four Indigenous Learning Outcomes. All sessions led by Cathy McRae, ILO Officer. Sessions count towards earning your Indigenous Learning Outcomes badge. Sessions are held in the Library Instruction Room (Shuniah 226). ALL staff welcome. Visit http://confederationcollege.ca/ilo/pd for more info!
