This event is part of the 2019 Indigenous Knowledge Holder Series .For the Indigenous Knowledge Holder Series, the Indigenous Studies Program seeks to enrich the McGill Community by inviting an Indigenous Knowledge Holder to spend a week at the university to share their scholarship, work, and advocacy. Indigenous Knowledge Holders – whether they be wampum belt holders, storytellers, artists, activists, hereditary leaders, or academics– encompass generations of knowledge embedded within the cultural and epistemological worldview of Indigenous communities that span generations. This Series seeks to act as a bridge between that knowledge and the institution while placing an emphasis on Indigenous community collaborations and partnerships through academic events, workshops, and community presentations.
