    Dr. Gary Babiuk


    From classroom climate to course material, teachers have many opportunities to model social justice to their students. In hopes of creating teachers who take advantage of these opportunities, education professor Dr. Gary Babiuk's research and teaching focus on teaching for social justice and sustainable well-being. 

    In one project, Babiuk worked with the department of education at an American university that had a long history of institutional racism. 

    Dr. Cathy Rocke


    How can we reconcile the relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in Canada? Funded by a grant from the Centre for Human Rights Research, Dr. Rocke (social work) is developing an intergroup dialogue curriculum. Intergroup dialogues happen when two small groups of people from different social identities, such as Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, meet over time and have conversations facilitated by trained people from each group. As past research shows that intergroup dialogue can decrease conflict and create peace between different groups, it is a promising tool for fostering reconciliation.

    Up Ghost River: A Chief’s Journey Through the Turbulent Waters of Native History

    Date: Tuesday October 21
    Time: 7:00 pm
    Location: McNally Robinson bookstore Atrium, Grant Park Shopping Centre, 1120 Grant Ave. Winnipeg

    Hosted by Ry Moran, the Director of the National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation at the University of Manitoba.

    In the 1950s, seven-year-old Edmund Metatawabin was separated from his family and placed in one of Canada’s worst residential schools, St. Anne’s in northern Ontario, now notorious for the range of punishments that staff and teachers inflicted on students, including sexual abuse and torture in an electric chair. Later, as an adult, Metatawabin’s trauma caught up with him, and his family and work lives imploded. In seeking healing, he learned from elders and reconnected with his Cree culture. Armed with a strong vision for the future of his community, he was elected Chief of Fort Albany. He has since worked tirelessly to expose the wrongdoings of St. Anne’s culminating in a recent court case against the federal government. Coming full circle, Metatawabin’s haunting and brave narrative offers key lessons on the importance of bearing witness and the ability to become whole again.

    Edmund Metatawabin is a Cree writer, educator and activist. A residential school survivor, he has devoted himself to righting the wrongs of the past, and educating Native youth in traditional knowledge. Metatawabin now lives in his self-made log house in Fort Albany, Ontario, off the reserve boundary, on land he refers to as my “Grandfathers’ Land.” He owns a local sawmill and also works as a consultant, speaker and researcher.
