Public Anthropology Speaker Series: Truth Before Reconciliation: The Role of Archaeology in Restorative Justice in Canada
February 4, 2022 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
The Public Anthropology Speaker Series invites you to attend a presentation with Dr. Kisha Supernant.
Dr. Supernant is an award-winning teacher, researcher, and writer whose areas of interest include digital archaeology, Indigenous archaeology, and heart-centered archaeological practice. Her research with Indigenous communities in Western Canada explores how archaeology can support the needs of these communities.
In this presentation, Dr. Supernant explores how archaeology is transforming from an extractive, colonial discipline to one that can support the needs and goals of systemically excluded groups. Drawing on examples from her work, she demonstrates the possibilities of archaeology as part of restorative justice.
All are welcome to attend this free event, but pre-registration is required.
