Ka Na Ta Dialogue: "Seeing Each Other: The role of media and Indigenous voices in reshaping relationships”
Wednesday, January 29th, 2014
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Vancouver Island University (VIU) is hosting a distinguished panel of guest speakers in this Ka Na Ta Dialogue. Expect a stimulating night of lively discussion on the role the media plays in shaping the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
“Seeing Each Other: The role of media and Indigenous voices in reshaping relationships” is part of the Ka Na Ta Dialogues series – an initiative of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) and the Gathering Voices Society. The event is part of VIU’s commitment to Nanaimo’s “Racism to Reconciliation” process, which began last spring.
AFN National Chief and VIU Chancellor Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, will moderate the event and will be joined by a distinguished panel of guest speakers including Wab Kinew, musician, broadcaster and educator; Judith Lavoie, freelance journalist; and Duncan McCue, CBC National reporter and professor at UBC's School of Journalism.
The dialogue will be live-streamed at www.viu.ca/kanata so people from across Canada can participate. The guest speakers will start the conversation sharing their expert views and personal perspectives. The audience – both live and online – will then be invited to ask questions of the panel either in person or through social media on Twitter #kanata2014.
