The Indigenous Book club is a Tri-Campus initiative started at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) Campus Department of Student Life in collaboration with the UTSC Library. The Book Club goals 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.
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.
Learn about how to engage in authentic allyship with our work on reconciliation and our work on the land, thinking through ways to take meaningful actions on our own campus and in our communities, as we go on this learning journey towards reconciliation together.
Participants will identify their own practices to support Indigenous resistance, solidarity, and allyship.
Location: Catalyst Centre, EV-151-152, UTSC
Hope to see you in the sharing circle!
