Dear Students, Teachers and Friends,
Welcome to a new year and a new start to the First Nation Studies Undergraduate Blog. Already a fall chill is upon us and assignments are due! We would like to extend a welcome to and a welcome back to our blog, which acts as a space for First Nation Studies students and other related fields to post their work in a safe and open space. This blog is the informal partner to the Indigenous Studies Undergraduate Journal and allows for a variety of work to be contributed. We also like to stay connected to the UBC and greater Vancouver area community through our events page. This September, there has been a surplus of events surrounding the arrival of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. As many of you know, all undergraduate classes at the University of British Columbia were cancelled in order for students to participate in the opening of the TRC at the PNE. Within many of our First Nation Studies courses, the theme of “reconciliation” has been very prevalent. We encourage an ongoing dialogue around the theme of reconciliation as an on-going process.
