The Department’s Professionalization Committee is excited to announce a forthcoming event for students and faculty working in Indigenous studies within the Anthropology Department;

Anthropologists and Indigenous Peoples, Post Truth and Reconciliation Commission

The event will feature alumni guest speakers at various career stages and spanning: Socio-cultural Linguistic, Evolutionary, Archeology and Medical Anthropology fields. Confirmed Speakers include Magda Smolewski (Director of Research, OFIFC), Darrel Manitowabi (Laurentian University), Talena Atfield (Canadian History Museum), Crystal Forrest (Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Government of Ontario), and Cynthia Welsey-Esquimaux (Lakehead University). We have asked speakers to share both their own experiences, and reflections on the challenges and opportunities for anthropology graduates contemplating careers working with Indigenous people/s in the current social and political context, post-TRC. The event will include the opportunity to network and mingle with the guest speakers. We warmly invite participation by faculty members, graduate and advanced undergraduate students and new alumni with interests in Indigenous research.

The event is sponsored by the Faculty of Arts and Science’s Milestones and Pathways program.
