Co-hosts: Urban Aboriginal Knowledge Network, Chanie Wenjack School for Indigenous Studies, Trent University
For the seventh generation imagining and creating Indigenous futures
This conference is in celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Indigenous Studies at Trent University and the twentieth anniversary of the Indigenous Studies PhD program at Trent and a showcase for the work of the Urban Aboriginal Knowledge Network. It’s a time of reflection upon where we’ve been, where we are and where we’re going as Indigenous peoples.
The conference organizers seek original works examining the themes of Imagining and Creating
Indigenous Futures, particularly in urban spaces including community driven research, health and
well-being, community development, youth and child development, urban indigenous identities, histories, ethics, governance, language and culture, justice, and education.
The ‘Call for Proposals’ has now closed, we look forward to seeing you in February.
