As part of the Umitemieu project, we are hosting a conversation on the presence of Indigenous cultural objects in museums and reflecting on the positionality of Indigenous researchers in colonial institutions.
How can you participate? Attend the discussion in person (note, there is a maximum of 25 audience members permitted in the space) or online by registering for the Zoom webinar or watching live on 4th Space's YouTube channel.
