Truth Before Reconciliation: Reframing/Resisting/Refusing Reconciliation March 10th, 2017

 

  • While much academic and public discourse since the release of the Truth and Reconciliation (TRC) final report has and continues to emphasize reconciliation, there is also deep skepticism about a process of reconciling that so readily glosses over truth-telling. Centering the truth as it relates to the TRC is essential to any meaningful processes of reconciliation in Canada. The inspiration for focusing on truth in this context comes from Dr. Sarah Hunt’s response to Senator Murray Sinclair at an event hosted at Green College at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in March 2016. Dr. Hunt is Kwagiulth (Kwakwaka’wakw) and Assistant Professor of Critical Indigenous Geographies and First Nations and Indigenous Studies at UBC.

 

Speakers: Patricia M. Barkaskas and Sarah Hunt and the event will take place on Friday March 10th from 6-8pm in room 1900 at the SFU Harbour Centre. This event is free but registration is required. The registration portal will open on February 24th.
