While much of public life and industry has paused during the COVID-19 pandemic, construction and land dispossession of Indigenous peoples has continued across Canada. In her 2021 Mallory Lecture, Ellen Gabriel will discuss the efforts of Indigenous communities to stop the theft and dispossession of their land, both historically and today.
As a human rights advocate for the collective and individual rights of Indigenous peoples, Ms. Gabriel has worked diligently to sensitize the public, academics, policing authorities and politicians on the history, culture and identity of Indigenous peoples. Her lecture will draw upon her wealth of activism experience and speak to the issues facing Indigenous communities today.
The lecture will be followed by a Q&A.
