Decolonizing Book Club

On June 2, we launched a biweekly Decolonizing Book Club, guided by Mi’kmaw educator Chris George. As Chris explains, “Fundamentally, decolonizing means building relationships and raising awareness. We need settler support, because the laws and structures that harm Indigenous peoples are put in place by a settler government. This is an opportunity to build those relationships and raise awareness.”

Chris George is a Ph.D student in Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of New Brunswick. His graduate research focuses on Indigenous cultural and political resurgence. 

We will be taking a break for the rest of the summer and plan to start the Decolonizing Book Club back up again in mid-September. We hope this break will allow folks to catch up on any readings that they might have missed and perhaps start reading the next book on our list: The Reconciliation Manifesto. New members are always welcome.

If you've already registered for the club, keep an eye out for email updates; you'll also find updates here and on our Decolonizing Book Club Facebook page.

We'll post a new registration link in early September. Have a great summer!
