All Day What the ????: How Geographic Research helps explain what is happening in the world today.

What is happening in the world today? From environmental climate change, to food security and sustainability, to human migration and displacement?

Join leading researchers from Geography and Environmental Studies to learn more about the research we do to help understand and address these issues; from building sustainable food systems, engaging with indigenous environmental knowledge, improving refugee and migration policies and addressing the political and ecological challenges of climate change in the age of the Anthropocene.

Join us for a day of presentations and interactive activities, and see how you can be part of our research mission to understand, and change, what is happening in the world today. Please indicate any dietary restrictions or any needed accommodations.

  • Martin Luther University College
  • 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM Eatenonha: Native Roots of Modern Democracy – book launch with author Georges E. Sioui

    Eatenonha is the Wendat word for love and respect for the Earth and Mother Nature. For many Native peoples and newcomers to North America, Canada is a motherland, an Eatenonha – a land in which all can and should feel included, valued, and celebrated.

    In Eatenonha Georges Sioui presents the history of a group of Wendat known as the Seawi Clan and reveals the deepest, most honoured secrets possessed by his people, by all people who are Indigenous, and by those who understand and respect Indigenous ways of thinking and living. Providing a glimpse into the lives, ideology, and work of his family and ancestors, Sioui weaves a tale of the Wendat’s sparsely documented historical trajectory and his family’s experiences on a reserve. Through an original retelling of the Indigenous commercial and social networks that existed in the northeast before European contact, the author explains that the Wendat Confederacy was at the geopolitical centre of a commonwealth based on peace, trade, and reciprocity. This network, he argues, was a true democracy, where all beings of all natures were equally valued and respected and where women kept their place at the centre of their families and communities.

    Identifying Canada’s first civilizations as the originators of modern democracy, Eatenonha represents a continuing quest to heal and educate all peoples through an Indigenous way of comprehending life and the world.
