Date/time: October 20, 5 pm MST

Speakers: Myrna Kostash and Chelsea Vowel

Moderator: Lindy Ledohowski

Description:

Chelsea Vowel will speak about what social and legislative forces impacted Indigenous peoples and Ukrainian settlers within a prairie-specific context, and how these forces influenced land-based practices and relationships.

Myrna Kostash will speak about what she learned from re-examining her grandparents' lives in the course of writing her forthcoming book, Ghosts in a Photograph: A Memoir. Her forebears were part of the first wave of immigration from Galicia in the early 1900s and had varying experiences as settlers in Alberta.
