Beyond Recognition, Towards Liberated Futures

With Riley Yesno

Riley Yesno

Since 2015, reconciliation has been the dominant term we’ve used to describe our goals for the future of Indigenous / Canada relations. What does reconciliation really mean? What critiques do Indigenous people have of reconciliation? And, ultimately, what must we all do to be a part of building the futures the TRC sought to articulate?

Riley Yesno (she/her) is a queer Anishinaabe scholar and public intellectual from Eabametoong First Nation. She currently studies at the University of Toronto and is a Vanier scholar.
