JSGS Public Workshop: The Relationship between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous People

University of Regina

Facilitated by Dr. Kathleen McNutt, Executive Director, JSGS, Ron Crowe, Executive-in- Residence, JSGS, and Cassandra Wajuntah, Research Affiliate, Indigenous Peoples’ Health Research Centre (IPHRC)

This one-day public workshop will provide an overview of the historical events and policies that have shaped the current relationship between Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people in Canada. The workshop will highlight how this historical context plays a role in the Calls to Action highlighted by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The workshop will also examine current Indigenous policy and review engagement strategies and relationshipbuilding tools that public servants can use with Indigenous communities.

By the end of this workshop, participants will:
1) Understand how historical events, policies and current legislation have shaped the current social, health, and education inequalities for many Indigenous people;
2) Be familiar with relationship-building tools and engagement strategies; and,
3) Have the background knowledge necessary to initiate the implementation of selected TRC Calls to Action.
