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 June 1; our registration deadline for all participants is August 1.
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 can camp, bunk in one of the rustic camp cabins or stay in the Wanapitei Chateau, an Ontario Heritage Building. 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 lodge, with one special session taking place at Bear Island, home of the Teme-Augama Anishnabai. Meals in the Dinning Hall, 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.
