Decolonial Reading Circle to welcome Mi’kmaw lawyer, scholar

Brock’s Decolonial Reading Circle (DRC) will virtually welcome Mi’kmaw lawyer and scholar Pamela Palmater to discuss her book Warrior Life on Wednesday, Jan. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Formed in September 2019, the DRC meets monthly in two online circles from September to April to discuss the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls as well as to examine decolonial readings by Indigenous writers.

Palmater’s work addresses a range of Indigenous issues and clarifies legal and political implications for the public.

Associate Professor of Women’s and Gender Studies Robyn Bourgeois, Brock’s Acting Vice-Provost, Indigenous Engagement, said the information Palmater will share is more important than ever.

“Dr. Palmater’s astute critiques of historical and ongoing colonialism expose the hard work that still needs to be done to decolonize Canada,” she said.
