REDI Lunch & Learn: Introduction to the Indigenous Initiatives Speakers Series
April 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Introduction to The Indigenous Initiatives Speakers Series: Derek Thompson – Thlaapkiituup Talks About the Importance of Persona & Persuasion in an Era of Truth and Reconciliation. The Indigenous Initiatives Speakers Series is an original and important platform to begin, continue and advance the conversation about telling the truth and reconciling for the future. In many of the presentations that I provide in my role as the Indigenous Initiatives Advisor I am often asked about how to best approach these important conversations, how to talk about these complex issues, and how to be mindful of those on both sides of the dialogue – as Indigenous peoples and as Canadians. I think that it’s always a useful exercise to consider why we choose to bring our self into this story, this chapter, this narrative between the pages of history and our modern times. Consider how you want to fit into the story, the stories, and what you are willing to contribute, and to think about how we inform and form our perceptions about Indigenous peoples and communities.
