Participants will take up the tensions between the imperative of reconciliation between the settler state and Indigenous peoples, and the facts of Canada’s occupation of Indigenous territories, appropriation of Indigenous lands, resources, sovereignty and self-determination.  The conversation will shed light on whether reconciliation is possible in the conditions of continuing oppression and appropriation of territory.

  • Veldon Coburn, Professor School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies, Carleton Univesity
  • Gina Starblanket, Professor of Political Science, University of Calgary
