The Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (REDI) is hosting their fourth Indigenous Speaker session on Dec 7th entitled “We Are All That Is Possible: Indigenous Principles and Perspectives of Disability & Belonging.” In this session we will have a conversation with Joanne Mills, a proud Cree woman from Ochekwi-Sipi Fisher River Cree Nation, a signatory to Treaty 5 in Manitoba and the Vice President of Quality Services & Indigenous Relations at Community Living British Columbia. She’s been a force of change and purpose for Indigenous peoples who have for too long been marginalized and labeled as living with developmental disabilities. In this session, we will have an opportunity to better inform our sensibilities and perceptions about Indigenous peoples who are both challenged with, and gifted with, developmental disabilities.
