Understanding our history of colonialism is essential to exploring the myriad of current issues in this country. The history and structures of settler colonialism are largely unknown to most Canadians. At its core, the logic of the settler colonialist state is the dispossession and erasure of Indigenous Peoples.
This workshop will examine the legal history of Canada and its relations with Indigenous peoples. Participants will gain understanding of Indigenous Peoples' agency, resistance, and activism in resisting settler state agendas and laws that were aimed at dispossession of lands, resources and loss of languages and cultures (through assimilation policies). We will also discuss how Indigenous Peoples continue to protect their inherent rights as Peoples, while revitalizing their ties to land, culture and languages. Workshop Length: 3 hours.
