Wednesday, October 5: Book Presentation: The Colonial Problem: An Indigenous Perspective on Crime and Injustice in Canada
Dr. Lisa Monchalin, from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, will be presenting her book 'The Colonial Problem: An Indigenous Perspective on Crime and Injustice in Canada' at the Longhouse. In her book, Dr. Monchalin, who is the first Indigenous woman to hold a PhD in Criminology in Canada, inverts the notion that the over-representation of Aboriginal people in the Canadian justice system is an 'Indian problem' (thus putting the blame on Indigenous people) but rather is a result of a 'colonial problem.'
This event is being hosted by the Aboriginal Health Initiative.
Wed, Oct 5, 6:30-8pm
Sty-Wet-Tan Great Hall, The Longhouse
