Join community members at the Waterloo Stratford Campus, on National Aboriginal Day, to learn more about Indigenous experiences and how community education provides opportunity for positive impact. The Stratford Public Library and University of Waterloo welcome Lori Campbell, Director of the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre.
Lori identifies as Āpihtākosisāniskwēw, Métis, Nēhiyaw (Cree) and Scottish, and will share stories of her experiences as an intergenerational survivor of the Indian residential school system and as a child from the Sixties Scoop generation. Her background as an Indigenous Studies scholar and speaker and her honesty in sharing her experiences inspires and stimulates essential conversations that strengthen reconciliation between indigenous and non-Indigenous cultures.
This free event will offer a frank discussion on Truth and Reconciliation, the future of Indigenous cultures in Stratford and Canada. Everyone welcome!
An informal question and answer period will be moderated by Judy Maddren, former CBC host.
Presented in partnership by the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus and Stratford Public Library.
