A Conversation with Waubgeshig Rice

September 21 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

All UBCO community members (students, faculty and staff ) are welcome to join esteemed Anishinaabe author and journalist, Waubgeshig Rice, as he speaks about growing up in Wasauksing First Nation and his journey to becoming an author. Growing up in Wasauksing First Nation on Georgian Bay, he learned about Anishinaabe stories and traditions from his family, community elders, and his school on-reserve.

Inspired by his culture and community to pursue storytelling, Rice will share how cultural revitalization and Indigenous-focused learning led him to a career at CBC and becoming a best-selling author, and how a similar path can inspire others to pursue their passions.
