Abstract

A presentation by the students of Anthropology 4050: Canadian Status/Treaty Indian Reserve Communities. In this session students will showcase their final assignments from the course ANTH 4050. Throughout the course we have discussed the complexities of the history of the reserve system in Canada, the nuances of the Treaty process, the rigidity of the Indian Act, the traumas of residential schools, and lived implications of forced relocations on Indigenous communities. We have examined how colonial relations are spatialized and how this spacialization translates into lived social relations. This showcase represents our desire to share what we have learned and why it matters with our TRU community in the hopes of nurturing a space of understanding, compassion, and mutually respectful conversation. Students will be in attendance to discuss their work from 3:30 - 6:00pm
