Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation Symposium

March 16-18, 2017 - Professor Heidi Stark drew together a group of indigenous scholars to host the Indigenous Resurgence in an Age of Reconciliation Symposium. 

The IRAR symposium brought 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. Their aim in hosting this event was to cultivate an environment for productive discussion of a central concern facing Indigenous resurgence: its relationships with creation (land, water, animals, ancestors) and how these relationships have been impacted by reconciliation politics.

This event was held on the traditional territories of the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples.
