Commemorate National Indigenous History Month with “A Silenced History – What We Weren’t Taught in School” with Dr. Pamela Palmater.

This talk will focus on learning, inspiration and change through a meaningful and thought-provoking conversation.

Dr. Palmater will deliver a 45-minute keynote presentation where she will address the historical and contemporary harm endured by Indigenous peoples, and provide attendees with actionable steps to forge a path towards a decolonial future through reconciliation. Ashunyung will perform the opening ceremony song.
