Indigenous Peoples & Democratic Politics: Strategizing Change 15 Years After RCAP (Miraj’s pick)
March 1 | 9 AM - 5 PM | 1985 West Mall at UBC | Free
It has been 15 years since the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples. With media headlines exposing deficient housing, undrinkable water, low rates of investment in education, and high levels of incarceration in Indigenous communities, it is time to take another look at the political relationship between Indigenous Peoples and the Canadian state.
Meanwhile facing a number of challenges due to the political, economic, and social legacies of colonialism, Indigenous peoples have demonstrated profound agency and determination in pursuing a just relationship with Canadian governments. The Idle No More movement has placed these efforts front and center and has demanded both reaction and action regarding the legitimacy of current systems of governance.
