The 2005 Wanapitei Colloquium will focus on major topics related to "Aboriginal Issues, Experiences and Interpretations: A Decade of Change, 1995-2005?" The following themes are guidelines — presenters are encouraged to offer papers on these or other themes within the main focus of the colloquium: legal challenges, Métis issues, residential schools, self-government-Canada's 1995 Self-Government Inherent Right Policy, environment, education and community development.
The Colloquium is a program affiliated with the annual Trent University Temagami Field Trip, the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Native Studies, Trent University and the School of Canadian Studies, Carleton University.
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. We encourage participation from a wide selection of background and expertise, including: Aboriginal Elders, faculty and graduate students affiliated with universities, professionals associated with consultancy firms and First Nations’ Organizations and people connected to federal and provincial government departments.
Please send abstracts for papers and ideas for sessions by July 1; our registration deadline for all participants is August 20. 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.
