Decolonizing the Mind
rabble.ca will host this plenary session, feeding off much of the energy of the day on November 19th, and will focus on what it means for independent media to incorporate decolonization into coverage in a settler dominated society. With special mind to reconciliation journalism, coming out of the Truth and Reconciliation report, this panel driven session will feature speakers with both background and lived experience in indigenous journalism, and provide opportunity for skill-building for media activists and media culture moving forward.
