From Wardship to Rights: Colonization & Its Effects
This Lent, you are invited to take part in the next offering of our Being a Good Ancestor series. In this four-part program, we will learning about the history of Indigenous relationships with the government of Canada right in our own back yard, as we look at the story of the Musqueam midden, the golf course on Musqueam reserve land, the Sen̓áḵw development, and the proposed Jericho Lands development.
This program, led by Kerry Baisley and Adam Yates, will be split across two learning sessions on weekday evenings and two Saturday morning field trips. Registration is free and participants are encouraged to attend all of the sessions for the full experience.
