We are honored to host Decolonization Through Storytelling, a conversation with Indigenous Elder Lee Maracle (Stó:lō Nation) on the Calls to Action of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission, and the work of decolonization at the University of Toronto.
Maracle, an acclaimed writer and poet, is a Traditional Teacher at First Nation’s House and served as an advisor to the Steering Committee for the University of Toronto Response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. This discussion will be moderated by Michel Mersereau, a PhD student in the Faculty of Information with family roots in the Mi’kmaq community of the Buctouche, New Brunswick.
This event is an initiative of the Truth & Reconciliation Student Working Group at the Faculty of Information, a voluntary committee of the Doctoral Student Association in collaboration with the Master of Information Student Council and the Museum Studies Student Association. This initiative seeks to contribute to and feed into the broader efforts at our Faculty and University, and within the information, heritage and education fields, to respond to the Calls to Action of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission, in step with the Faculty of Information’s “Faculty of Information’s Commitment to the Findings And Call for Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission,” and the final report of the Steering Committee for the University of Toronto Response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, Answering the Call: Wecheehetowin (2017).
