Creating Community Partnerships
A Conversation with Members of the Yellowhead Institute
Monday, November 2
11:30am – 1:00pm PT
The Yellowhead Institute is a First Nation-led research center based in the Faculty of Arts at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario.
Privileging First Nation philosophy and rooted in community networks, Yellowhead is focused on policies related to land and governance.
The Institute offers critical and accessible resources for communities in their pursuit of self-determination.
Join us for a compelling panel discussion featuring Indigenous scholars and community organizers from the Yellowhead Institute, who will share their approaches to research and partnerships.
