What:

Sheridan Reads is part of the Creative Campus Series, which brings diverse speakers on campus to engage students, staff and the wider community in thought-provoking experiences.  “An Inconvenient Indian” has been described as a critical and personal meditation conducted by Thomas King over the past 50 years about what it means to be “Indian” in North America. “We hope that this event will spur a meaningful dialogue in our community about the relationship between indigenous and non-indigenous people in our country, to consider our history and its implications for our future as a society,” says Sean McNabney, Associate Dean in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the coordinator behind Sheridan Reads.
