Winter 2016 Conference: “Decolonization: Space, Politics, and Knowledge”

Our last conference offered engaging presentations encouraging the push back of oppressive, (neo)colonial systems through grassroots knowledge and solidarity building.

It featured a panel discussion composed of Elsipogtog Elder, Noel Milliea, Mount Allison’s Indigenous Affairs Coordinator, Doreen Richard, along with Jenna Gaudet, Emma Hassencahl and Spencer Issac of the Indigenous Support Group. The discussion was followed by a reception held at the President’s house and a social event off-campus. The second day of the conference was full of student presentations, followed by a keynote speech presented by Harsha Walia.

The organizers of ATLIS recognize that this conference took place on unceded Mi’kmaq territory, and that our role as settler colonialists is not just to recognize the histories of violence that have allowed us to occupy stolen land, but also to actively work to ease this injustice.
