Learning from and with Indigenous Community Members Book Club
Join us for another session of the Learning from and with Indigenous Community Members Book Club on Thursday, January 12, from 6-7:30 pm EST!
This book club will be a space where non-Indigenous and Indigenous people can come together to learn through conversations amongst Indigenous guest speakers in relation to Indigenous literature and topics that are meaningful to them and their nations/communities. It is an invitation to get to know Indigenous community members at York University and in neighbouring communities. The intention is to cultivate learning about the diverse histories, ways of knowing, ways of being, lived experiences, identities, and visions for the future of Indigenous Peoples.
Introducing our guest speakers:

Marissa is currently a doctoral student in the Faculty of Education at York University, where she is researching beadwork as pedagogy, a bridge toward cultural reclamation and (re)conciliation. In her collaborative work with various organizations, Marissa works towards photographing, consulting, educating, and creating programming in meaningful ways.
