2017 Building Reconciliation Forum - #UMBRF2017

  1. It’s Rosanna Deerchild! 
Rosanna has been a (literal) voice for #Indigenous people across #Canada, and a voice I know very well! Rosanna and I met “on the air” a few months ago and now finally met face-to-face! 
I am, and will be for a while, reflecting on the past two days of the National Building Reconciliation Forum that was held here in #Winnipeg. 
Canadian universities have an enormous responsibility in #reconciliation and I take great pride in being one small part of it. 
Lots of more work to do, so let’s just keep on keepin’ on!

  2. Dr. Kevin Lameroux during his panel discussion at the Building Reconciliation Forum today. In this moment we are given a moment of, Indigenous humour through poetry, from Dr. Lameroux before diving into more serious topics and concerns regarding safety and Indigenization. (Will be featured in the next clip). Poetry by Indigenous Poet Kash #umBRF2017 #umindigenous #umanitoba #umstudent #treaty1 #reconciliation
  3. First Nations leadership development and spirituality by Dr. Jaqueline Ottmen. Dr. Ottmen began her panel with the importance of acknowledging the Traditional Territories we are on. Our youth are the next generation and it is essential we inform our youth of such positions as, Vice-Indigenous Provost Engagement, so they can aspire for those positions, as children.” Dr. Ottmen went on to speak of the concept of leadership as this was the main theme to her thesis research. When thinking of the concept of leadership, we all are leaders, we all have a circles of influence. Similarly to our Chieftain leadership. The Chiefs who signed the treaties thought of me and you, as we are apart of those 7 generations. Their rationale was of a holistic measure. Although Dr. Ottmen has much more to say, we will conclude with her quote. “We research what we value and that is a form of love.” #umBRF2017 #umindigenous #umanitoba #umstudent #treaty1 #reconciliation
