Land Acknowledgement Workshop
Land acknowledgements are becoming more and more common both on and off university campuses, but a growing number of commentators are questioning the practice’s sincerity and impact. This workshop will offer participants insights on how to adopt meaningful land acknowledgement practices and offer the opportunity to reflect on how they could apply these at their own institutions.

The Graduate College presents:
Come join us at our screeening of "Niigaanibatowaad: FrontRunners". Pronounced Nih-gahn-ee-BAHT-oh-wadt: Frunt-Ruhn-erz, this film is a memory play narrated by the main character, Thomas, an Aboriginal residential school survivor now in his 50s. He has been invited by the organizers of the 1999 Pan Am Games to finish a run with the Games’ torch that abruptly ended 400 metres too early in 1967. The invitation revives memories and finally, after a painful confrontation, he realizes that finishing the run is the first step on the path of healing. This 46-minute DVD, a filmed, shortened version of the play, is based on true stories told to playwright and filmmaker Laura Robinson by the 1967 Pan Am Games torchrunners. Niigaanibatowaad: FrontRunners premiered on APTN in November 2007 and screened at the 2007 Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival.
We are honoured to have runner Bill Chippeway as well as playright/filmmaker Laura Robinson to speak about their roles in the film and wider experiences following the screening.
