Speak Truth to Power: Living the Peace & Friendship Treaty through Netukulimk
October is Mi’kmaw history month when we celebrate Mi’kmaw culture and heritage. Here at Dalhousie we acknowledge that our University is situated in K'jipuktuk ("che-book-took." - Halifax) the unceceded and unsurrendered territory of the Mi'kmaq nation who have been here for over ten-thousand years. This year, Mi’kmaw history month comes amid the Sipekne’katik First Nation issue around their right to fish for lobster under the 1752 Peace & Friendship Treaty.
On behalf of Dr. Theresa Rajack-Talley, Vice Provost, Equity & Inclusion, and Catherine Martin, Director, Indigenous Community Engagement Dalhousie University, we invite you to attend our virtual Forum, the 4th episode in our series Speak Truth to Power where we focus on Living the Peace & Friendship Treaty through Netukulimk. The event is scheduled for Thursday, October 29th, 2020 from 6-8pm.
This forum aims to hold space, and provide an avenue for critical analyses and evidence- based discussions so that we can all learn, grow and take positive actions as a collective of different peoples and cultures. Panel members will include representation from Dalhousie University and the Mi’kmaw community.
This will be a Zoom event and details can be found on the Facebook Event Page (panel members bios will be added as they become available.)
