The next meeting of the London Chapter OAS will be online via ZOOM. It will be held on Thursday February 10, 2022 at 7:30 PM. The speaker will be:
Dr. Gary Warrick, Professor Emeritus, Wilfred Laurier University on: Indigenous-Land Relationships in the Grand River Valley 1784-1851.
Tune in to hear Dr. Warrick’s talk which weaves together two research projects that he is currently involved with in collaboration with Indigenous scholars and nations.
In the late 18th and early 19th century, the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe (Mississauga) had a close relationship with the lands and non-humans of the Grand River valley. Historical (oral and documentary) and archaeological evidence help us to see that Indigenous-land relationships in the Grand River valley remained relatively the same for thousands of years and continue today despite the impacts of settler colonialism.
London Chapter members will be automatically sent a ZOOM link but anyone else wishing to attend can send an email request to Jim Keron at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will send a link to the ZOOM meeting session.
As a heads up, at our Thursday, March 10th 7:30 PM meeting the ZOOM speaker will be Dr. John Creese, University of North Dakota speaking on some aspect of his research on Ontario Huron/Wendat sites.
