Next meeting: Wednesday, July 28 at 7:30pm ADT


Readings: 

Unsettling Canada, by Arthur Manuel and Grand Chief Ronald Derrickson 

  • We will be covering topics from this book in the next meeting. We have not assigned specific readings; however we suggest reading the whole book before July 28. 
  • We encouraged everyone to attend the upcoming meetings even if you do not have a chance to complete the readings. 

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. 

The book club sessions are free and hosted online. Register here for the Zoom link and to receive book club updates.
