Indigenous speaker series graphic

You’re invited to our 2018-2019 Indigenous Speaker Series held at the First Peoples’ House at the University of Victoria!

Everyone is welcome to attend the 9th annual series which focuses on research towards improving the health and wellbeing of Indigenous peoples, and we ask that participants support us in creating a culturally safe and respectful learning environment.

We acknowledge with respect the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples on whose traditional territory the university stands and whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.

***Lunch now provided!***
