Our Struggle: Aboriginal Issues in Canada and Beyond, on February 29 (10am-8pm),
York University, Glendon College, in the Student Lounge (in the Glendon Manor)
2275 Bayview Ave.
Why are aboriginal people so important to Canada? What exactly are the issues aboriginal peoples face in Canada from THEIR perspective? What is their relationship to Canada? Do negotiations work? What does the future look like through Aboriginal peoples’ eyes?
This full-day event is a great chance for students to ask these questions and learn more about Aboriginal issues!
Hosted by the Aboriginal Students Association at York, this event is being held for the FIRST TIME at Glendon College, and also is a part of York’s 6th Annual Aboriginal Awareness Days and Powwow (February 28 – March 1).
There will be many noted speakers throughout the day as well as free food, so please come celebrate Aboriginal Awareness at Glendon College with us in the Student Lounge on February 29!
