Invitation from TRUFA (Thompson Rivers University Faculty Association): Speakers & Book Signing – Drs. R. and M. Ignace.
Please share the attached updated poster… Everyone is welcome to attend.
Canada has not entered into a Treaty with Secwepemc people. Despite this, the city of Kamloops and TRU is located on the unceded lands of the Secwepemc people, who have lived here since time immemorial. A critical part of education provided by TRU aims to foster a better understanding among our domestic and international students, faculty, staff and community members about what it means to live on unceded lands; socially, economically, politically, legally, historically and in these contemporary times.
The Inaugural Indigenous Speakers Series is pleased to present Dr. Ronald Ignace (Secwepemc) and Dr. Marianne Ignace (co-authors); who will be speaking about their book Secwépemc People, Land, and Laws: Yerí7 re Stsq’ey’s-kucw (2017)
