Events Overview


Treaty and Scrip

Indigenous Voices event with Lyndon Linklater
9:30 AM to 12:30 PM


Participants will learn about relationships between Indigenous peoples and the land, and how these relationships factor into treaty agreements and land claims and rights with First Nations and Metis peoples in Canada. An opportunity to learn about Metis scrip, agreements, and nation-to-nation treaty relationships is vital in understanding how to honour and respect the agreements.

Whiteness and Privilege

Indigenous Voices event with Carmen Gillies
1:00 PM to 4:00 PM


In this session you will begin or continue to explore your racialized identity and consciousness.  You will learn about the historical social construction of race and its purpose, the invention of whiteness, and the property value of whiteness.  White privilege and protection will also be examined in relation to Indigenous education on campus.  As a group we will identify various ways white privilege limits, prevents, and distorts Indigenous education and decolonization at the University of Saskatchewan.  This session requires a commitment to dialogue about difficult and often uncomfortable topics and feelings regarding racism and Indigenous peoples in Saskatchewan with a focus on your personal experiences.   The commitment to consider how your racial identity influences your engagement with Indigenous education will prepare you for further Indigenous Voices programming.
