Join the Indigenous Book Club!

 

Join us at the U of T Indigenous Book Club where we will discuss the books/podcasts/media we've read/listened to by Indigenous peoples of Canada.

 

The goals of this book club are to foster a space of collaboration, sharing, inquiry, and respect amongst faculty, staff, and students through the discovery and awareness of Indigenous authors and themes thereby creating a sense of community.

 

Participants will learn about Indigenous themes and engage in conversation on different Indigenous perspectives that helps with addressing obligations, responsibilities, solidarity, and supporting resistance of Indigenous people of Canada.
