Two renowned scholars, Karine Duhamel (Anishinaabe-Métis) (Canadian Museum for Human Rights) and Iyekiyapiwin Darlene St. Clair (Bdewakantunwan Dakota) (St. Cloud State University), will discuss their work in Indigenous education, as well as the limits and possibilities of education to serve both for and as reparative justice in both contexts. Participants will have a chance to engage with the presenters in a brief discussion. This virtual presentation and discussion are free and open to the public.
