Event Details

Keynote speaker Erica Violet Lee

Join us for the fourth annual #TreatyEdCamp, a full-day professional development opportunity! This free event is open to teachers, pre-service teachers, and the general public - anyone who is interested in learning more about the legacy of residential schools, Treaty Education, and the historical and contemporary implications of Treaty.

This year, we will kick off the day with a keynote from Erica Violet Lee (check out her “Moontime Warrior” blog). As in past years, the rest of the day will feature sessions led by many awesome teachers who will share strategies, ideas, and resources related to the implementation of Treaty Education in classrooms as well as to the role of schools and educators in the work of reconciliation. This year’s event will also include sessions that address anti-oppressive education more generally, as well as sessions featuring presenters from community and activist organizations that will help attendees to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and possibilities of decolonization and reconciliation. Additionally, the event will include a showcase, where attendees can explore and purchase books, web resources, Treaty maps, teacher guides, and more.

The event will also include an optional pre-conference on the evening of October 12th - details and registration coming soon!

If you are interested in facilitating and/or sharing your experiences with Treaty Education, please email us at treatyedcamp@gmail.com!

Note: Bannock burgers (with both beef and veggie patties) will be available for purchase on the day of the event.

This event is sponsored and organized by UR S.T.A.R.S. (Students & Teachers Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppressive Society) and is made possible by support from the Faculty of Education.

UR S.T.A.R.S.

UR S.T.A.R.S. (Students & Teachers Anti-Racist/Anti-Oppressive Society) promotes anti-oppressive education in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina. We work to understand, identify, and address individual and systematic forms of oppression based on race, gender, sexuality, socio-economic status, religion, age, disability, and other socially constructed categories. As a group, we will analyze the roots of inequality in curriculum, school, and society, critique norms, and work to deconstruct our common sense notions of school. Additionally, we work to recognize privilege and power relations and focus on ourselves in relation to others, recognizing that our positionality affects our teaching. We aim to normalize conversations about oppression within the teaching profession and to help our peers to see the importance of anti-oppressive practices. Finally, we understand that anti-oppressive teaching is not something one can ever achieve; rather it is an ideal and a goal we must continually work towards.
