Moved to Action: A Workshop on Activating the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Canadian Museums

Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec/Canada

May 3, 2023 / 10:00am – 11:30am EDT (UTC -5) / 16:00h – 17:30h CEST (virtual)


Presenters: Stephanie Danyluk and Rebecca MacKenzie

Facilitator: Heather Igloliorte

Format: Zoom workshop


Museums have, from their preliminary existence, been part of the colonial project. The Moved to Action report, released by the Canadian Museums Association in 2022 in answer to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #67, provides a series of standards for museums seeking to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and support Indigenous self-determination.

How do we acknowledge the truth of the colonial legacy of museums while also supporting our work as community institutions? Join the report co-authors to discuss hopes for a national baseline of support for Canadian museums and ways that together we can be moved to enact and support Indigenous self-determination.

Gespräch mit Amber Bracken / Conversation with Amber Bracken


on Tuesday March 14, 2023, at 4 p.m.
at the Embassy of Canada on Leipziger Platz 17 in Berlin

Amber Bracken is a freelance photojournalist based in Edmonton. She is particularly interested in the intersection of photography, journalism and issues affecting indigenous peoples of North America.

With her photo „Kamloops Residential School“ she won the „World Press Photo of the Year“ award in 2022. The photograph commemorates 215 Indigenous children whose unmarked graves were found near the western Canadian city of Kamloops, British Columbia, on the site of a former residential school. The World Press Photo exhibition has subsequently been shown in many cities around the world. In Germany, it is currently on display in Oldenburg.

We hope to be joined by activist Snutetkwe Manuel via video from Canada. She is one of the initiators of the memorial photographed by Amber Bracken.

New Directions in Indigenous Book History (online)

Free, public virtual symposium to be held on 

Thursday, March 23rd, and Friday, March 24, 2023

Registration is free and open to the public.

Visit the conference website for a full program.

After the ten-year anniversary of Phillip Round’s Removable Type: Histories of the Book in Indian Country, 1663–1880 (2010) and at the twentieth anniversary of Louise Erdrich’s Books and Islands in Ojibwe Country (2003), we invite the general public to join us in a free, two-day, virtual symposium in which national and international scholars will offer analyses, reflections, and provocations on the material book’s historical and continuing relation to Indigenous peoples and communities. We will also take the occasion to mark the flourishing—though still nascent—field of scholarship on the materialities of the Indigenous book and the productive interventions such scholarship has made into the traditionally settler-oriented fields of bibliography, scholarly editing, and book history.
