Indigenous Speaker Series

Cargill presents the Augustana Indigenous Speaker Series, in partnership with the Chester Ronning Centre for the Study of Religion and Public Life and the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre.

This series will be offered to University of Alberta students, staff, faculty and alumni as well as community members, beginning this fall. The events in this series will provide opportunities for participants to engage with speakers, films, music and art performances sharing perspectives from Indigenous peoples, cultures and traditions of Canada. They will include both Indigenous and settler voices to address the importance of genuine allyship. This series represents one effort to continue to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action.

These events are free to the public for both in-person and digital events, but you must have a ticket. Reservations can be made through the Lougheed Centre box office. Check out the links below for more information.
