Learning with Syeyutsus Speaker Series: Season 2

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - Wednesday, May 25, 2022

Please join the Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools, in collaboration with UBC Press, for season two of Learning With Syeyutsus, an Indigenous learning series featuring Canadian authors and thought leaders.

In response to the Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools’ goal of Truth & Reconciliation and Canada’s TRC Call to Action #57, we have curated a speaker series covering a range of topics including true histories, pedagogies, self-determination, land resurgence, and stories to spark ideas for further exploration and deeper learning on your own, with your family and/or your work colleagues.

This is a FREE learning series proudly presented by the Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools, in collaboration with UBC Press and their authors as part of TRC Call to Action #57. The series will be recorded and available for ongoing educational purposes and deeper learning.

Together, we are seeking to promote a deeper conversation towards rebuilding our relationships with Indigenous peoples and the Land for a stronger Canada.
