CINSA 2015: Survivance & Reconciliation: 7 Forward / 7 Back
Date: 11-13 June 2015 at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The Canadian Indigenous/Native Studies Association (CINSA) Conference 2015 will be hosted
by the First Peoples Studies Program (FPST) at Concordia University. Concordia University’s
First Peoples Studies program recently received government of Quebec accreditation and began
offering a minor and major in September 2013. The year, 2015 is also the 40th anniversary of the
groundbreaking James Bay Agreement of 1975. Come honour and celebrate these two important
events by participating in the first CINSA gathering since 2008.
The conference’s theme borrows from the Anishinaabeg vision that asks all people to consider
themselves from the standpoint of Seven Generations Back and Seven Generations Forward. Our
peoples have endured much over the last Seven Generations, but through our ancestors efforts we
have resisted and survived. Now the current generation is looking forward Seven Generations to
ensure our continued survival as peoples. As part of the process we have embarked on a path of
reconciliation with ourselves and settlers. We hope that such efforts will help ensure our
collective survivance through reconciliation.
The conference organizers seek original works examining the themes of ‘survivance’ and
‘reconciliation’ in Quebec, Canada, North America, and the World in relationship to Indigenous
peoples and nations. Other topics or themes will be considered. The organizing committee invites
scholars and community members to submit proposals, in French or English, for:
individual papers, panel sessions, posters, roundtables, workshops, film screenings, and
All French or English proposals (between 200 - 250 words) should be accompanied by a brief
