Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation, Pre-symposium and Symposium events – March 15-18, 2017.
Pre-Symposium Event: Landsdowne Lecture with Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
March 15th 5:00 pm, First Peoples House, Ceremonial Hall
Hosted by the Department of Political Science
Freedom Sings: Land/Bodies/Resurgence
This talk will explore Indigenous resurgence and nationhood through story, song and video. Leanne will discuss resurgence as an ongoing intervention into the colonial project by sharing works from her recent album f(l)ight (RPM Records), her new book of short stories This Accident of Being Lost (House of Anansi) and her forthcoming academic work on the The Radical Resurgence Project (UMP Press). More information about Leanne Simpson.
- This symposium will bring together many prominent Indigenous scholars in the fields of Political Science, Law and Indigenous Governance to consider the long intellectual tradition of Indigenous resurgence within these fields while looking toward new directions in consideration of the challenges and possibilities produced in the era of reconciliation. The aim in hosting this event is to cultivate an environment for productive discussion of a central concern facing Indigenous resurgence: our relationships with creation (land, water, animals, ancestors) and how these relationships have been impacted by reconciliation politics.
Speakers: Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Heidi Kiiwetinepinesiik Stark, Dian Million, Sheryl Lightfoot, Christine O’Bonsawin, Taiaiake Alfred, Glen Coulthard, Sarah Hunt, Aimee Craft, Audra Simpson, Hayden King, Nick Claxton, Hokulani Aikau, Daniel Heath Justice. This event will take place at the University of Victoria at the First Peoples House from March 15th to 18th 2017. No registration is required, and the event is free.
- The Anishinaabe Initiative Division and the Department of Geography and Geology at Algoma University will be holding the 2nd Bi-Annual Symposium on Gdo Akiiminaan Ganawendandaan (Taking Care of Our Land), on May 9-11 2017 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The purpose of this symposium is to explore, through research and best practices, the inclusion of cultural and traditional practices of land management, planning and use for Aboriginal communities in Northern Ontario. The theme for this year is Reconciliation.
The deadline for abstracts is set for midnight on February 22nd, 2017. For more information, please click on the link.
We invite candidates to contribute to the conference theme: “Teaching search and research”. The essence of this conference aims to capture the mutual interrelations between the academia and schools in order to combine discourses and align positions. The particular interest is to bring practice into theory and theory to practice. The ISATT 2017 encourage submissions that examine the diverse teaching contexts and the many changes occurring across education research and practice: from design to implementation.
Date: July 3-7, 2017
Location: University Of Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain
You are invited to submit your contributions in English in any of the following formats: oral presentations, posters, symposia, and workshops.
Submission deadline: December 28, 2016.

SAGE is such a wonderful community of scholars! I am truly grateful for the learning experiences, and opportunities to serve Indigenous grad students for the past two and a half years. As of September, I have become a part of the team at the First Nations House of Learning, as the Aboriginal Student and Community Development Officer. I hope to be a resource to Indigenous graduate students in this role, and to continue being an active member of SAGE while I finish my PhD. I invite all of you to drop by room 184 at the Longhouse to visit anytime – please come say hi!
Thanks and enjoy the SAGE Digest!
