and Reconciliation in
Indigenous Education

Wednesday, October 17th at 6 PM - 8 PM

Neville Scarfe Building - Rm. 100

Hosted by Dr. Blye Frank - Dean, Faculty of Education UBC


Dr. Blye Frank, Dean, Faculty of Education, the University of British Columbia, hosts the third installment of FRANKLY SPEAKING on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018. In the spirit of ideas worth advancing, the theme will be Indigenous Education. In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada released a list of 94 Calls to Action that would start the reconciliation process between Indigenous people and the settlers of Canada. The reconciliation process is indeed a process – a process that starts with education. And through education, we better understand the history, policies, practices and decisions that affect First Nations in Canada, and that have led us to today. At the event, we will be hosting three featured speakers including: The Right Honourable Paul Martin, Former Prime Minister and Founder of the Martin Family Initiative Kevin Lamoureux, the Associate Vice-President, Indigenous Affairs at the University of Winnipeg Jo-ann Archibald, PhD, Q’um Q’um Xiiem, Professor Emerita and Former Associate Dean, Indigenous Education, Faculty of Education, UBC
