Aboriginal Leaders in Conversation on Education
Is it possible for Canada to close the education gap between Aboriginal peoples and other Canadians? How do the stories and experiences of Aboriginal communities vary across Canada? What strategies are needed to pave the road ahead? To answer these questions and many more, the Federation’s Equity Issues Portfolio has invited a group of Aboriginal leaders to reflect on their experiences and imagine what the future will hold for Aboriginal peoples.
Participants include Udloriak Hanson (Special Advisor to the President of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami), Betty Ann Lavallée (National Chief, Congress of Aboriginal Peoples), Marie Battiste (University of Saskatchewan), Jo-ann Archibald (University of British Columbia),
and David Newhouse (Trent University).
