Traditional views of Canada's First Nations have undergone enormous revision since 1945. This talk will examine the nature of these changes and their implications for popular understanding and for public policy. With the plight of our indigenous people much in the news these days, this is a timely and important topic of relevance to Humanism!
Dr. Leighton is a professor emeritus of history at Huron College. He has researched and taught courses on First Nations history, and is a past president of the Ontario Historical Society.
After the talk, there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion.
NOTE: The meeting is in the Stephenson Hunt room at Central Library.
