Peter Russell, Professor Emeritus of Political Science, University of Toronto will speak on the topic: Understanding Aboriginal Peoples in a Canada based on incomplete conquests.

Peter’s presentation, drawn from his latest book Canada’s Odyssey, will serve as a clear response to the general confusion about the place of Indigenous peoples within Canada’s constitutional structure. He will revisit the assumptions Canadians hold regarding Indigenous peoples and the history and structure of the Canadian state.
