And Social Justice for All: Indigenous Youth, Indigenous Voices is a one-day symposium for high school students, York students, and community members in the Greater Toronto Area scheduled for April 26, 2017.

Showcasing the creative accomplishments and critical output of diverse young Indigenous voices across the country, this symposium will encourage conversation and collaboration among individuals living across and through colonial, occupied, and re-claimed territories in the land now known as Canada.

  • Learning from the Land, facilitated by Chelsie John, Candice Jacko, and Onika Forde
  • Treaty Rights, facilitated by Jesse Thistle
  • Indigenous Identities, facilitated by Ryan Neepin
  • Pipelines 101, facilitated by Samantha Craig-Curnow, and
