Remembering our Past, Rethinking the Next 150 Years and Beyond

Panels and Plenary
Indigenous-Settler Relations And Decolonization

This panel examines three themes (urban education, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit youth, and the Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action) and examines how researchers in the social science, humanities, and education are working to understand the relationship among the themes. The panel emerges from careful consideration of the Congress theme, The Next 150, On Indigenous Lands, situating this panel and Congress itself at a historical moment in which we must reflect on the impact of four hundred years of colonization before we can collaboratively engage in creating a more just and equitable future for Canada’s Indigenous peoples. Congress 2017’s location in downtown Toronto led to the selection of urban education for Indigenous youth as one of the themes, tying it to the TRC Calls to Action.

This session is co-sponsored by the following associations; ACDE/ACDE, CSSE/SCÉÉ, CASWE/ACFTS, CSA/SCS, and CHA/SHC.

Financial support for this session was provided by the Federation for the
Humanities and Social Sciences.
