Join us for a discussion with Elder Gerry Oleman, a member of the St'at'imc Nation in British Columbia. Elder Oleman will talk about how identity is formed both collectively and for each individual, how identity is imposed on us, and how we can also create our own identities. Participants will gain greater awareness of the ways colonialism has impacted and continues to impact not only Indigenous identities, but non-Indigenous collective identities as well.
