First Nations House of Learning Cross-Cultural Understanding Series

Building on last year’s Dialogue on the Indian Residential School System, a series of events will be held at the First Nations Longhouse to provide the University community a chance to learn more about this history, promote dialogue, and plan future initiatives.

The series will bring together a diverse range of participants and presenters to foster cross-cultural learning. Events will include a presentation by representatives from the Musqueam Indian Band on whose ancestral and unceded land the University sits, interactive sessions with community organizations, film screenings, a lecture on Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission and Aboriginal Human Rights by Robert Watts, and more.
