Indigenous Speaker Series for children and educators: National Indigenous Peoples Day with Lance Cardinal

National Indigenous Peoples Day is a day for all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, diverse cultures, and outstanding contributions of First Nations, Inuit and, Métis peoples. This year the Faculty of Education and Augustana Campus of the University of Alberta is thrilled to welcome children and educators onto our campus to celebrate with Lance Cardinal. Please join us as we engage in Reconciliation in a welcoming and affirming space.

We are opening this event for the general public to attend virtually and there are two sessions on June 19, 2024 to choose from: 10 a.m. or 1 p.m.

This Augustana Indigenous Speaker Series event is presented by Cargill, and supported by TD Insurance, in partnership with the Jeanne and Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre, the Augustana Campus and the Faculty of Education at the University of Alberta.
