"Giving Face to Diversity: Canada's Native Landscape in Transition" will be a sweeping series of lectures and discussions on the revival of Native cultures. Among the issues to be covered will be Native land claims, social and environmental issues, and even the launching of a new territory, Nunavut, which will take place during the quarter. It will be offered in collaboration with WWU and some classes will be teleconferenced.
