Indigenous Education Day in Oxford is a day-long event on Tuesday, March 21 at the Quality Hotel & Suites. Headlining the event will be keynote speaker Joseph Boyden. Boyden is an award-winning novelist whose stories focus on the historical and contemporary experience of First Nations peoples. His writings often reflect on the perils and inner strengths of marginalized groups.
The event will also feature workshops and discussions surrounding topics like Indigenous cultural safety and reconciliation. Attendees will be able to learn about national reconciliation initiatives and how they can become involved in making a difference for First Nations children.
All of the events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required for those planning to attend the Indigenous Education Day.
