Join us Thursday, August 23rd at 6PM in the gallery for a presentation by Dr Andrew Judge, an Irish-Anishinaabe scholar, who will discuss two-eyed seeing, the practice of blended Indigenous and European approaches to "re-search" and ways of knowing. Recovery from colonization requires new paradigms that allow space for the inclusion of Indigenous Cultural Knowledge and Traditional Ecological Knowledge. Learning ways to actualize two-eyed seeing supports the resurgence of Indigenous knowledges.
