Feminist Lunchtime Talk (a part of #callresponse exhibition public programming)
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 an institution, in a society deeply shaped by settler colonialism. Our esteemed panel of discussants will share their experiences of Indigenizing institutions in the GTA and across Canada, including the problems, paradoxes, and possibilities of these efforts.
