Indigenizing Insititutions - Following the publication of Canada's 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission report and resistance to celebrations of Canada's 150th anniversary in 2017, many Indigenous groups and allies have called for greater attention to the legacies of discrimination and oppression that have shaped the development of the nation. This panel responds to these calls by asking what it means to effectively Indigenize and institution, in a society deeply shaped by settler colonialism. Our panelists will share their experience of Indigenizing institutions in the GTA and across Canada, inlcuding the problems, paradoxes, and possibilities of these efforts.

Presented in partnership with the Women and Gender Studies Department.
