We Are All That Is Possible: Indigenous Principles and Perspectives of Disability & Belonging with Joanne Mills

December 7 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us virtually on Wednesday, December 7th, 2022 from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (PST), for “We Are All That Is Possible: Indigenous Principles and Perspectives of Disability & Belonging” with with Joanne Mills, Vice President of Quality Services & Indigenous Relations at Community Living British Columbia. Joanne Mills is a proud Cree woman from Ochekwi-Sipi Fisher River Cree Nation, a signatory to Treaty 5 in Manitoba. She’s been a force of change and purpose for Indigenous peoples who have for too long been marginalized and labeled as living with developmental disabilities. In this fourth session of the Indigenous Speaker Series, we will have an opportunity to better inform our sensibilities and perceptions about Indigenous peoples whom are both challenged with, and gifted with, developmental disabilities.
