Land acknowledgements are becoming more and more common both on and off university campuses, but a growing number of commentators are questioning the practice’s sincerity and impact. This workshop will offer participants insights on how to adopt meaningful land acknowledgement practices and offer the opportunity to reflect on how they could apply these at their own institutions.

  • Daniel Heath Justice, PhD, FRSC, Acting Director of the Institute for Critical Indigenous Studies, The University of British Columbia
