Join us Nov. 29 for ii’ taa’poh’to’p update and gathering to celebrate one year of Indigenous Strategy
On Nov. 29, the university community will celebrate one year of ii’ taa’poh’to’p, the University of Calgary’s Indigenous strategy. As a direct response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action, this ambitious strategy aims to renew and develop authentic relationships with Indigenous communities, as we walk parallel paths toward genuine reconciliation.
“We’ve made some excellent progress in just one year, and I’m excited to share our journey with the community,” says Dr. Michael Hart, vice-provost (Indigenous engagement). Hart will deliver a strategy update alongside Dr. Dru Marshall, provost and vice-president (academic), and will be moderating a panel of four Indigenous scholars and community leaders as they share their thoughts on cultural inclusivity in ways of knowing, doing, being and connecting.
