Virtual Global Indigenous Speakers Series / Cicla de conferencistas indígenas globales

Imagining Possibilities through Indigenous Knowledge Systems

Critical issues of our time including climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic have challenged the current state of affairs, provoking an inward gaze among our global community on the resiliency and sustainability of our current philosophies, structures and systems. Indigenous knowledge systems that are relational and well-established can offer alternative approaches to contemporary issues and support the re-imagination of our global future.

This invitational Speakers Series highlights the theory, research, and practice of international Indigenous scholars, offering students and faculty across disciplines inspiration, creativity and paths forward in uncertain times.
