Would you like to know more about Indigenization and reconciliation in the university context? Join us in the FAUW Indigenization Reading Circle. All are welcome and no experience or prior knowledge is necessary. Together we will work at hearing Indigenous voices and contemplate what respect for Indigenous ways of knowing and being means for universities.
