This event brings together Indigenous scholars, some well-known, others early-career. Each critically engages with the often difficult relationship between Indigenous knowledges and the academy, which has excluded Indigenous presence for hundreds of years. At the same time, each shares their own insights, from diverse Indigenous perspectives and in their own, unique voice.
Co-chairs: Angele Alook, Bigstone Cree Nation, York University, and Elaine Coburn, Euro-canadian, York University
