York University and partners invite students to join the International Indigenous Student Exchange Knowledge Fair on Dec. 16 and 17 from 7 to 10 p.m.
Understanding Indigeneity transcends national and regional contexts, and York University has launched the International Indigenous Student Exchange Program to provide opportunities for dialogue and collaboration between Indigenous students at York and their peers in Australia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico and the Philippines.
The event will feature many participants who will share their stories and engage meaningfully with the participants in an effort to expand their understandings about global Indigeneity. The Knowledge Fair is a two-day virtual showcase, where students will share culminating projects and reflections covering a range of topics, including Indigenous knowledges, cultures and histories, healing trauma through art, gender, disrupting colonial spaces and re-Indigenization movements.
Live interpretation for the event will be available in English and Spanish.
