The Reconciliation Industry: Land Dispossession and Extractivism in an Age of Official Contrition Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

 

  • Reconciliation has become the watchword of this era of relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. In part that’s because the Truth and Reconciliation Commission has made important contributions to the public understanding of residential schools. But for the Canadian government and industry, what does the rise of reconciliation discourse entail? Is reconciliation a shape-shift in ongoing colonization? What kind of reconciliation is possible if the crime is still in progress?

 

Speakers: Martin Lukacs and Khelsilem and the event will take place on Tuesday, February 21st from 6-8pm in room 1800 at the SFU Harbour Centre. This event is free but registration is required. Please click on the link for more information.
