The four conversational talks will feature Global Development Studies Instructor Ian Fanning (Algonquin), pictured above, speaking with invited guests on topics that explore Indigenous solidarity in various forms, why we need it at Queen’s and in the wider community, and how we can support Indigenous resistance and resurgence.
