You are invited to a workshop to explore the recently-published Dewemaagannag/My Relations: Principles and values to decolonize engagement with Indigenous communities. This workshop is an opportunity for non-Indigenous participants to reflect on settler-Indigenous relations by using this important guide. 

Created by Concordia's Office of Community Engagement, the Dewemaagannag/My Relations guide for researchers, academics, and university staff features key principles and values to help in building and deepening their relationships with Indigenous individuals, organizations, and communities. 

This workshop will be led by Aphrodite Salas, a journalist and professor at Concordia University who will share her experience of decolonizing education and doing collaborative journalism research. Participants will be invited to reflect on settler-Indigenous relations in the context of teaching and research.

Lunch will be served.

The Office of Community Engagement at Concordia University assists in the creation of academic and non-academic partnerships that are locally rooted, community-driven and beneficial to all involved. With social justice as a core value, we prioritize groups that have been excluded from or dismissed by institutions, and support collaborations that address inequalities in innovative ways. More specifically, we apply the university’s commitment to building long-term and meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities as described in the Indigenous Directions Action Plan.
