Key note Megan Bertasson will speak to the need to continue asserting Indigenous sovereignty in a context where terms like reconciliation, Indigenize, and decolonize are misunderstood, misused, and appropriated in service of the Canadian settler colonial regime. She will ground this talk in discussions about gender violence, poverty, racism, and colonialism.
The venue is wheelchair accessible and all are welcome.
