If you do not wish to present a paper, we urge you to participate in other ways such as by offering to chair one of the sessions or by just joining in the discussions. Please contact us to make arrangements for your active participation in this event.
Sponsored in part by Trent University’s Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Native Studies and the Department of Native Studies, the Wanapitei Colloquia are informal and highly participatory gatherings of scholars and Aboriginal spokespersons from across Canada and around the globe. While most participants are from Canada, people have come from Slovenia, Finland, the United States, Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom. Please send abstracts for papers and ideas for sessions by May 15.
The Colloquium will take place at the Wanapitei Chateau, a wilderness lodge associated with a Camp and a CANOE organization on scenic Lake Temagami north of North Bay, Ontario. Participants will stay in the Wanapitei Chateau (an Ontario Heritage Building) or bunk in one of the rustic Camp cabins. Wanapitei is accessible via the rough gravel Red Squirrel road or by a ten minute fly-in from the village of Temagami. Sessions are held in the Chateau and the Youth Camp Dinning Hall. One special session and lunch will take place at Bear Island, home of the Teme-Augama Anishnabai. Meals in the Chateau , swimming and canoeing, a short canoe / hike field trip to beautiful Red Squirrel Lake, and activities for the kids are also part of the package.
Past proceedings from the Colloquium have been prepared for publication in edited volumes. We hope to continue publishing colloquium proceedings.
The Colloquium fee (tax included) is $314.50 for full time Graduate Students and $374.50 for everyone else (half-price for children 12 and under). This price will include all meals and accommodations and a taxi boat ride to and from Bear Island on beautiful Lake Temagami.
