Integrating Knowledges Summit
October 14, 15, and 16, 2016
Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre and University of Waterloo
The objective of the Summit is to materialize the research and practices of "truth" and "reconciliation" with a focus on collaborative education, pedagogical histories, and methods of decolonization. A direct response to the TRC's Calls to Action, the Summit promises an intercultural calling-in of researchers, scholars, social justice advocates, elders, intergenerational survivors, artists, knowledge keepers, cultural and multidisciplinary practitioners and performers, educators, and students, among others to reflect on the consequences that emerged from the residential school legacy and the impact on educational paradigms.
Events include keynote speaker Dr. Cindy Blackstock, a performance workshop, 9 Circle Discussions, Six Nations and Waterloo School Board Youth Workshop, TRC Reading Challenge, Mini Ode Kwewak N'gamowak (Good Hearted Women Singers), the Blue Sky Singers, History Speaker Series, art installations and more.
The Summit is funded by SSHRC Connection Grant, Ontario Arts Council, University of Waterloo (Arts), REAP, among many other organizations and individuals.
