Settler-Colonialism in Local & Global Contexts

Mar 6, 2024 03:30 PM to 05:30 PM

Registration Deadline: Mar 6, 2024 03:30 PM

A photo of the world map, with text "Settler-colonialism in local & global contexts; March 6, 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. Explore how settler-colonialism impacts people in Canada and around the world."

Settler-colonialism exists as long as settlers are living on the Indigenous peoples' land. But what is settler-colonialism and settler identity? What are the aims of settler-colonialism? How have settler people benefitted from settler-colonialism? In this workshop, we will explore these questions and look at how settler-colonialism plays out in Canada and around the world. Owning the settler identity is the key step followed by further engagement and actions as we embark on the path of allyship. This session will be co-facilitated with the Cultural Competency Training Officer from the Office of Indigenous Initiatives.
