Totem Pole outside St. James Church

The story of the Indigenous peoples of this Land is not simply of their oppression and of injustices committed against them, but increasingly of the resilience and vibrancy of Indigenous art, culture, thought and political expression. This panel features four very different but complementary Indigenous scholars and spokespersons who will speak of their spirituality in light of this resurgence.

A display of Indigenous art by Jobena Petonoquot will complement the panel.

This event is free but registration is mandatory.
