The University of Alberta is pleased to host the first Two Spirit conference held in Alberta. Building on the success of the 2011 AMIQAAQ conference, the 2012 conference theme Born This Way: Two Spirit Voices. This ground-breaking conference is supported through the Office of the Provost Vice President (Academic). Working in conjunction with the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services (iSMSS), Edmonton's Two Spirit Society, Exposure Committee, and many others we are able to provide an unprecedented opportunity to “break the silence” that has long surrounded sex, sexual and gender differences in our families, cultures, and communities. Born This Way will be held November 2-3, 2012 at Campus St. Jean. Registration details are now available at: http://www.aboriginal.ualberta.ca/bornthisway/
Students at the University of Alberta will have a new opportunity to boost their knowledge with the launching of a dynamic new certificate program in Aboriginal sport and recreation.
Tracy Bear can’t help but be excited by a special gathering on campus May 13, when people from Aboriginal communities all over Alberta will come together with University of Alberta students, faculty and staff for a sharing of knowledge in all its forms.
