Join us for a talk with Lynda Gray to celebrate National Indigenous History Month. The presentation will provide a brief overview of the history that has brought First Nations and non-First Nations people to today, and where we need to go from here. Lynda will discuss how this history has led to both challenges and opportunities to work towards true reconciliation. She will explain why respect for culture and trust building are essential in engaging with and/or working with First Nations individuals.
Lynda is the author of the national bestseller First Nations 101, former Executive Director of the Urban Native Youth Association, public speaker, and independent contractor. Her work is grounded in a strong belief in community development, youth empowerment, and culture as therapy.
