Join us for part one of the Indigenous Book Club where we will learn about various books, podcasts, & other media by Indigenous peoples of Canada. The event will conclude with a sharing circle where participants will select 3 items to read or listen to by Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021. 

Facilitators:

  • Juanita Muise, Indigenous Engagement Coordinator, UTSC Office of Student Experience & Wellbeing 

The Indigenous Book club is a Tri-Campus initiative started at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) Campus Department of Student Life in collaboration with the UTSC Library. The Book Club goals are to foster a space of collaboration, sharing, inquiry, and respect amongst faculty, staff, and students through the discovery and awareness of Indigenous authors and themes.   

  • Participants will learn about Indigenous themes and engage in conversation on different Indigenous perspectives that helps with addressing obligations, responsibilities, solidarity, and supporting resistance of Indigenous people of Canada.    

  • Learn about Indigenous perspectives on personal gifts and talents, and how the purpose of these gifts is that they are meant to be shared in support of community, ensuring others learn, grow, and benefit from these gifts.   

  • Participants will identify their own personal gifts and talents, and how they can be utilized in support of Indigenous resistance, solidarity, and allyship.   


Hope to see you in the sharing circle!
