The UBC First Nations House of Learning is hosted an Idle No More Teach-in at Sty-Wet-Tan, the great hall of the First Nations Longhouse, on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the Musqueam people.


Distinguished Aboriginal faculty provided a background on the movement, outlined the aspects of Bills 38 and 45 that are seen as problematic and discussed ways that classroom dialogue around this issue can be incorporated in an informed and productive way. Everyone was welcome, including students, staff, faculty, TAs and community members - and people packed the place! CiTR was thankful to be part of this event, helping to bring it to listeners who couldn't attend in person.
