Amiqaaq: Sharing Songs, Knowledge, & Traditions: The Ethical Relationships* that Exist Between Us

This one-day conference will be held on Friday May 13, 2011 at the University of Alberta. The theme is centred around how we relate to, or understand, Aboriginal ways of being from our own personal perspectives. Amiqaaq is an Inuktitut word that means sharing. If you have an academic paper, a story, a song, (or even a dance or a recipe with how your culture makes bread) that highlights the commitment of recognizing one another in each of our own unique ways, we invite you to join us.

This is an invitation to all Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in Alberta. Bring your drums and let’s amiqaaq!

* Ethical relationships means all of us coming together as one, and recognizing the beauty of our similarities and differences. The goal of this conference is to start a legacy of coming together in traditional and contemporary ways and seeing what transpires. We all share this one world and this conference will focus on discussions that help to discover how we share the world through ethical relationships.

People in Academia: Call for Papers, Songs, Knowledge:

If you are faculty, staff, or a graduate or undergraduate student who is Aboriginal or non-Aboriginal, your proposal can be in the form of an academic paper, a story, song, or dance that demonstrates how you are committed to ethical relationships.
