With this talk, Donald will explore the significance of the fort as a mythic symbol at the heart of the creation story of Canada that provides insight into the ongoing relational psychosis that troubles Aboriginal-Canadian relations. Specific attention will be given to stories of Canadian nation and nationality that maintain this troubling relationship. He will suggest that Indigenous philosophies can provide guidance to us all on how we might begin to live together in more ethical ways.Bio
