Haudenosaunee Language & Culture
This year, Amos Key Jr., from the Six Nations of the Grand River community, will be teaching Politics and Process of Reconciliation in Canada, Indigenous Music: Technical and Theoretical Aspects, and Special Topics in Indigenous Language.
Ryan DeCaire, Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) from Wáhta Kanien’kehá:ka territory will be teaching Introduction to an Iroquoian Language (Mohawk), Indigenous Environmental Science and Practice, and Revitalizing Languages.
The expansion of our teaching faculty is a huge milestone for our program. With more faculty members contributing to the research and teaching community at the Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives, we’re excited to see what the future brings for our program. We hope you’ll join us in welcoming both Amos and Ryan to the U of T community!
Reclaiming Our Place in the Circle
On March 17th, Chantal Fiola from the University of Manitoba joined us at the Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives for her talk on Métis and Anishinaabe spirituality. Fiola’s talk is based on her doctoral research, which focuses on the relationship between Métis ancestry, Anishinaabe spirituality and identity. Chantal Fiola has also recently published a book titled, Rekindling the Sacred Fire: Metis People and Anishinaabe Spirituality.
