About this Event

The Promised Land: In Search of Freedom, Prosperity and #LandBack for Indigenous Peoples

“People treat reconciliation as if it’s an inevitability, I’m not sure that it is. It's contingent on the actions of Canada and Canadians – it’s not a ‘when’ but ‘if’ we get there. "

-Max FineDay

You’re invited! Join us at the fifth annual Indigenous Speakers Series. Max FineDay, Executive Director of Canadian Roots Exchange, a recognized leader in delivering reconciliation programming to Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth across the country, will be our guest. FineDay, a nêhiyaw napew from the Sweetgrass First Nation in Saskatchewan, Treaty 6 Territory, is passionate about training the next generation of leaders, understanding theories of changemaking, and increasing access to traditional ceremonies for Indigenous youth.

The Event will be moderated by Nahlah Ayed, host of CBC Radio's Ideas.

Date: Monday, November 25

Time: 7:00 pm (Doors open at 6:30 pm)

Location: Malaspina Theatre (Bldg 310 - VIU, Nanaimo campus)

Please join us after in the lobby for a reception.
