The FAUW Indigenization Reading Circle explores Indigenization and reconciliation in the university context. Everyone on campus is welcome and no experience or prior knowledge is necessary. Selected readings and discussions cycle through recurring themes to effect a spiral of learning where novices can hop in at any time—you won't get lost if you can't attend every meeting.

Together we will work at hearing Indigenous voices and contemplate what respect for Indigenous ways of knowing and being means for universities. The circle creates a space of respect, support, and co-learning. Members share a commitment to pursue steps, whether small or large, on the journey to create just relations with First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples.

The reading circle is coordinated by George Freeman (Electrical and Computer Engineering), Ryan George (Economics), and Kim Hong Nguyen (Communication Arts), with oversight from the Indigenization Working Group.

Upcoming sessions
