Arthur Manuel

Aboriginal title activist to speak in Kelowna

Arthur Manuel to begin UBC's AlterKnowledge Centennial Series on Sept. 18, 7 p.m., at Rotary Centre for the Arts.

Arthur Manuel—an internationally recognized activist, leader, and advocate for Aboriginal title and rights in Canada—kicks off UBC Okanagan’s 2015/16 AlterKnowledge Series on Sept.18, 7 p.m., at the Rotary Center for the Arts, 421 Cawston Ave.

Co-author, with Grand Chief Ronald M. Derrickson, of Unsettling Canada: A National Wake-up Call, Manuel will discuss the political struggles documented in his recent book, and the project of decolonizing the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in BC and Canada.

This is a free event and the public is welcome to attend.

The AlterKnowledge Discussion series, organized by UBCO assistant professor Allison Hargreaves and associate professor David Jefferess, aims to foster community-engaged knowledge-making, rather than simply providing a venue for the presentation of research to the public.

The series seeks to bring people together to discuss, share and (un)learn. This year, as part of the university’s Centennial celebration, the AlterKnowledge Centennial Series will focus on critical engagements with the way colonialism continues to shape relationships, identity, and place.
