New Indigenous Speaker Series

Whisperings of the Land is the theme for a new Indigenous Speaker’s Series towards understanding Indigenization. Indigenous people have always had a close relationship to the land. There has also been an historical disruption in land relocations, land desecration and pillaging for economic gain. Our presenters will relate to how the land speaks to them.

The first speaker will be Dr. James Daschuk, author of Clearing the Plains.

January 23, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. (noon)

Education Building, Room 210

The Indigenous Speaker Series is open to all Education faculty, staff, and students.
