Keynote speaker Dr. Anton Treuer closes out Inver Hills Community College's Student/Faculty Conference. This year's theme was Flourishing in a World of Disasters. In this talk Dr. Treuer discusses some of the disasters visited upon American Indians, as well as how the effects of those disasters continue to linger even today. What makes this talk so powerful is that it does not simply attempt to lay blame, rather, Dr. Treuer offers possible solutions for growth and the possibility of authentic global flourishing. (NOTE: the camera needed reset every 30 minutes, which is why there are three "two second" breaks. NO content was lost in those, and the battery died right as Dr. Treuer cited Chris Rock and how racist does one have to be to turn down a day off of work just because it celebrates a black person. The talk ended right after that, so nothing of import was lost.) Thank you to all that helped make this happen!

There are many truths around the Canadian Residential Schools that most people do not know. One of the biggest is the extent to which young First Nations youth are still affected by their families' and communities' experiences within the Residential School system. This film is the result of five courageous Aboriginal youth and one mother who are ready to be heard.

JSGS Public Lecture: Implementing the Duty to Consult: Explaining Similarities and Differences in Provincial Approaches to Aboriginal Consultation Presented by: Dr. Martin Papillon, Associate Professor, School of Political Studies, University of Ottawa Provincial governments in Canada have responded to recent Supreme Court decisions on the constitutional duty to consult Aboriginal peoples with a series of policies outlining their interpretation of this new norm and procedures to implement it. While these policies vary significantly, broadly reflecting the specific economic, political and legal context of Aboriginal-state relations in each province, recent developments suggest a convergence both in the definition and in the implementation of the duty to consult across Canada. This presentation discussed possible explanations for this convergence and its implications for Aboriginal-provincial relations and for policy-making in the Canadian federation more broadly.

Presented by Chief Bellegarde, Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Saskatchewan is in the middle of an unprecedented resource boom. With oil and gas in the south, potash in central Saskatchewan and uranium in the North, along with promising mineral plays in various locations,Saskatchewan's economy is growing rapidly. First Nations are determined to benefit from the boom, as Treaty Peoples with strong ties to the land and with promises from government that we will benefit from development. With duty to consult and accommodate requirements in place, Saskatchewan First Nations have become national leaders in working out appropriate collaboration and impact and benefit agreements with companies and governments. Much more can be done. More First Nations can be employed on the resource projects. Greater care can be taken to protect our traditional lands and protect our people from harm. There are important business opportunities for First Nations companies that remain to be developed. First Nations will not stand in the way of properly managed development that is based on consultations and agreements with our communities, but nor will First Nations agree to open-ended development strategies that do not return a fair share of the benefits from resource development with the Saskatchewan First Nations.

Children and youth are among the most vulnerable of society's citizens, with those in government care having a further series of risks. In Canada, our Aboriginal children and youth are among the most at risk. More Aboriginal children are in government care in comparison to other children. Fewer Aboriginal children graduate from high school than their non-Aboriginal counterparts. And, too many Aboriginal children live in poverty, become involved with the youth justice system and suffer from intergenerational impacts of residential schools. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond's goal is that all young people in British Columbia have the same opportunities for success. Her Big Thinking presentation will examine how Aboriginal children, youth and their families have become marginalized, and look at what can be done to ensure that this population @ the edge is heard and this inequality addressed. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond is President of the Canadian Council of Child and Youth Advocates, an alliance of provincial advocates from across the country who champion the voice and rights of children. She was appointed B.C.'s first Representative for Children and Youth in November 2006 and has worked as a criminal law judge in youth and adult courts, with an emphasis on developing partnerships to better serve the needs of young people in the justice system, particularly sexually exploited children and youth and those with disabilities.

May 16, 2013 - Artist Discussion In conjunction with Raymond Boisjoly's exhibition at SFU Gallery, (And) Other Echoes , the artist participates in a conversation with writer and art historian Marcia Crosby. Their discussion approaches shared interests in representations of urban Aboriginal peoples and culture. The exhibition at SFU Gallery continues the artist's examination into technological mediation and its capture of cultural and political intervals. Taking the 1961 film The Exiles (which documents one night in the lives of young Aboriginal men and women living in Los Angeles in the late 1950s) as a starting point, Boisjoly scans the moving image to obtain still images that register indexically and are accompanied by text. The exhibition runs to August 2, 2013. Raymond Boisjoly is a Vancouver based artist of Haida and Quebecois decent. Marcia Crosby is a writer, art historian and educator.
