The Indigenous Dialogue Series 2023 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University brings together members of the KPU community—students, employees, affiliates, and the general public; settler and Indigenous—to listen, learn, and engage with Indigenous scholars, activists, and thought leaders on local, regional, national and global issues impacting Indigenous Peoples.

Indigenous Dialogue Series
If Racism is the Problem: Anti-Racism is the Antidote


Dr Verna St Denis

Guest Speaker:  Dr. Verna St. Denis, Ph.D.
Special Advisor to the President on Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression and Professor Emerita
University of Saskatchewan/ College of Education

Only with the most egregious instances of racial violence do we hear calls to address racism. Rather than engaging with anti-racist education, institutions often recommend a variation of cross-cultural awareness education, which trivializes the problem of racism. Anti-racist education requires greater emotional, intellectual and institutional investment.
