UBC’s Okanagan will host a free public event Wednesday, Feb. 23, featuring a panel of Indigenous Studies faculty who will share their research and expertise in the area of indigeneity.

“Indigeneity can be defined as the study and practice of the essential philosophical and cultural foundations of Indigenous Peoples, and has become a key focal point for the Indigenous Studies program at UBC’s Okanagan campus,” said Indigenous Studies professor Greg Younging.

The guest speakers will include Jeannette Armstrong, Tirso Gonzales, Margo Tamex and Younging.

The event will be held in the UBC Okanagan lecture theatre, located in the Administration Building (ADMIN 026).

Complimentary food and refreshments will be offered.
