Arctic teaching experience brought to bear in Wednesday workshop and lecture

The relationship of Canada with its Indigenous peoples is fraught with misappropriation, abuse and cultural genocide, says Lori-Anne Dolloff.

Professor of music at the University of Toronto, she will make two appearances at the University of Windsor on Wednesday, April 6.

First, she will draw on her travels to Nunavut over the past seven years in a workshop entitled “Singing, Drumming, Dancing: A Qallunaat Teacher in the Arctic.” It is set for 11:30 a.m. in the Education Gym.

At 4 p.m. in room 1121, Education Building, she will deliver a free public lecture “Decolonizing the Teacher: a Canadian Experience of Teaching in the Arctic.” This research talk will follow a narrative approach, using stories from her visits to teach in the schools and community of Iqaluit.
