Essay Topics (Choose 1)
1) How can we see the impacts and outcomes of Canada’s educational policies – residential schools, chronic underfunding of Indigenous education, and the theft of territories – in the lives of Indigenous peoples and Canadians? How can this be tangibly seen in the ongoing violence and privilege throughout Canadian society?
2) What are two pressing social, political and/or economical issues that stand in the way of reconciliation between Indigenous peoples and Canada? (examples: Violence against Indigenous women and girls, the Indian Act, Indigenous language loss, etc). How would reconciling these issues create a better Canada for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples for the future?
