The Indigenous Book club is a Tri-Campus initiative started at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) Campus Department of Student Life in collaboration with the UTSC Library. The Book Club goals are to foster a space of collaboration, sharing, inquiry, and respect amongst faculty, staff, and students through the discovery and awareness of Indigenous authors and themes.
Participants will learn about Indigenous themes and engage in conversation on different Indigenous perspectives that helps with addressing obligations, responsibilities, solidarity, and supporting resistance of Indigenous people of Canada.
Learn about Indigenous perspectives on personal gifts and talents, and how the purpose of these gifts is that they are meant to be shared in support of community, ensuring others learn, grow, and benefit from these gifts.
Participants will identify their own personal gifts and talents, and how they can be utilized in support of Indigenous resistance, solidarity, and allyship.
Hope to see you in the sharing circle!
