This month's panel will address two common requests at Ryerson. The first is for a greater understanding of why many events begin with an Aboriginal opening that acknowledges that Ryerson sits on traditional Aboriginal land. The second emerges from students who want more Aboriginal/Indigenous content and curriculum. The panelists will discuss these topics and provide their perspectives on why it's important to bring Indigenous protocols and knowledges into the academy. Monica McKay (Director, Office of Aboriginal Initiatives) moderated the discussion.
