Indigenous Educational Series

Since colonial contact and occupation, there have been dramatic changes to the identity, culture, and society of Indigenous peoples in Canada.

In today’s Canadian landscape, what issues do Indigenous people face? How has colonialism impacted their traditions and everyday life, societies, and economy? What have been the successes and breakthroughs? What is the outlook for the future?

The Social Equity and Diversity Education (SEDE) Office’s Indigenous Educational Series aims to raise awareness and initiate an exchange of ideas on First Nations, Métis and Inuit topics within the McGill community. The series provides opportunities to explore and examine a variety of issues and promote greater knowledge and understanding about the Indigenous peoples in Canada.

2014 Indigenous Educational Series

The programme will be available in January 2014.
