14 - Cathy Tuckwell
04:14:21
What is meant by accountable to First Nation Communities...?
Regina Mandamin
04:15:49
miigwetch, good work, very informative! Great to see you Vicki!
14 - Cathy Tuckwell
04:18:58
Thank you. Do you feel the OIEC is not fulfilling that role ... engaging members of the University and the First Nation communities.
Paige Gustafson
04:21:03
Miigwetch to all the presenters, and speakers. This was informative. Great job,
Stephan Kudaka
04:21:24
We are forced to compete against each other for funding constantly
Stephan Kudaka
04:21:35
and for attention to our issues
Stephan Kudaka
04:22:49
The government has set up these communities not to thrive but to be contained
14 - Cathy Tuckwell
04:23:33
Thank you,Vicki!
Stephanie Chartrand
04:23:41
Agreed Stephan, I would like to discuss this further later in the open discussion
Jessy Bogacki
04:23:51
I really appreciate the extensive drive into calls to action that have been mentioned and will be continued to be discussed. I have read the official calls to action and done my own research into what that means and what I can personally do. However, I love how you’ve pinpointed specific items that are easy to understand. I hope that made sense. I don’t mean I don’t want to do the work, just that someone’s I’m not sure exactly what meaningful actions that I can take.
Rosanne Monague
04:24:45
Miigwech Vicki
14 - Cathy Tuckwell
04:25:11

Vicki M. R. Monague

@Rosanne, Not @Todd. lol
McKenzie Watt
04:32:32
Wasant there a big fight over the Newfoundland fishery a few decades ago
Stephan Kudaka
04:33:07
Yes about 20 years ago I think around Burnt Church
McKenzie Watt
04:38:02
I actually remember a year ago we were told that British Columbia has the most First Nations claims
Vicki M. R. Monague
04:39:30
Miigwech Debra!
Alex Thomson
04:39:30
Thanks for sharing Debra.
McKenzie Watt
04:39:43
Are you all right, Doctor?
Douglas Alan West (he/him)
04:40:13
I am feeling very good McKenzie - thank you
Sukhraj Singh (He/Him)
04:40:57
thank you for sharing Debra
Stephanie Chartrand
04:42:51
Debra- thank you for being here. We are honoured to bring our collective knowledge together for you. We appreciate all the work you do.
Debra a
04:43:31
Thank you
George Drazenovich
04:47:59
Move beyond consultation to participation in governance
Sukhraj Singh (He/Him)
04:48:25
^agreed
Dylan Mazur
04:49:15
Agreed Vicki!
Douglas Alan West (he/him)
04:51:04
One of the things that University has just done is divest its investments away from fossil fuel corporations in favour of green economic futures. Why can't we also support the devolution of property away from ownership to stewardship? And learn from our indigenous friends and allies?
Stephanie Chartrand
04:51:06
I’m radical McKenzie lol
Debra a
04:51:19
Me too
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
04:51:24
Me three
McKenzie Watt
04:52:22
I wasnt calling anyone here radical, I was just noting that is a common arguement used when these systems come under pressure
Douglas Alan West (he/him)
04:52:31
We can share the actionable items with the Board of Governors and the Executive of the University.
Ismel Gonzalez
04:53:15
Decolonization has to be more than a metaphor in institutions.
Douglas Alan West (he/him)
04:53:27
yes
Ismel Gonzalez
04:54:13
If management does not change atitudes, then the work stays at the metaphor level.
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
04:56:22
it is hard to decolonize an institution rooted in and created by colonialism, but it is absolutely necessary that we keep doing the work.
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
04:56:45
great job today everyone
Donovon. L
04:58:29
I agree, I believe that is why there has been such a push for a complete dismantling of the current system. It has been so warped by racist ideologies and colonialism that it has become something that can not be redeemed. With the knowledge we have know, the building of an entire new system becomes more feasible.
Donovon. L
04:58:44
now*
Stephan Kudaka
05:00:02
Donovon, one of my papers argues for the need of a new Constitutional agreement which addresses the grievances and interests of everyone.
Vicki M. R. Monague
05:00:09
Miigwech Ismel!
Vicki M. R. Monague
05:00:21
Miigwech means Thank you.
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
05:00:26
Absolutely! Plus, gate-keeping within the institutions allows our current systems to continue being inaccessible. We absolutely need to rebuild and reshape what we believe knowledge to be.
McKenzie Watt
05:00:33
I dont really see much of a chance for any Constitutional change.
McKenzie Watt
05:01:02
Making institutions more accessible is definetly more easier and doable
Donovon. L
05:01:39
That sounds really interesting Stephan! I think that's absolutely a topic that needs to be introduced into the dominant conversation surrounding governmental reform
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
05:02:18
I am hopeful for meaningful change especially since we are having these important conversations
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
05:02:55
thank you for putting this together everyone
Sukhraj Singh (He/Him)
05:06:11
yes of course
Stephanie Chartrand
05:06:32
Use the masters tools to take down the masters house.
Ismel Gonzalez
05:10:37
Exactly. That’s what many indigenous scholars have used the English to get back to the empire.
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
05:11:54
AGREED VICKI
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
05:12:00
sorry for caps
Dylan Mazur
05:13:01

McKenzie Watt
05:14:05

Douglas Alan West (he/him)
05:14:57
Every once in a while we need to take a deep breath....and enjoy a moment...
McKenzie Watt
05:15:14
Enjoy a moment?
McKenzie Watt
05:15:49
What do you mean by enjoy a moment?
Douglas Alan West (he/him)
05:16:00
small silences
McKenzie Watt
05:16:05
Okay
McKenzie Watt
05:16:44
Stepahnie you are cutting out, can you repeat that
Stephanie Chartrand
05:18:41

George Drazenovich
05:21:05
Yes have a problem with the charity model
McKenzie Watt
05:21:18
What charity model?
George Drazenovich
05:21:24
prefer justice model
McKenzie Watt
05:21:34
Prefer justice model?
George Drazenovich
05:22:08
people having a right
George Drazenovich
05:22:13
Governments have obligations
George Drazenovich
05:22:20
that is all I mean
McKenzie Watt
05:22:25
Okay
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
05:22:41
I love this discussion
Stephanie Chartrand
05:23:34
They profit off of the charity model
George Drazenovich
05:23:43
Fees are taxation without representation
McKenzie Watt
05:24:03
I actually saw a film in high school about how corporations after they got bailed out in the financial crisis paid themselves utterly obscene bonuses.
Stephan Kudaka
05:24:05
Agree George
Stephanie Chartrand
05:28:15
We need to be more conscious consumers and citizens, we are all responsible. We participate in racism through our consuming habits.
Aleesha Gostkowski (she/her)
05:32:19
agreed
George Drazenovich
05:33:22
