RECONCILIATION

Dr. Sinclair will be speaking about Anishnaabeg art and literature, bridging understandings towards reconciliation.

“Reconciliation is about the hard work of sharing. It's about resources, time, space and land. This means commitment to change, in all its complicatedness.” Niigaan Sinclair, Winnipeg Free Press, 08/17/2018

Dr. Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair is Anishinaabe from St. Peter's/Little Peguis, Manitoba. Currently on sabbatical as an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba, his work spans national and international print and publications. In 2018, he joined the Winnipeg Free Press as a columnist and in May 2019, Niigaan was named Canada’s Best Columnist, winning also a distinguished National Newspaper Award. He is also a recovering high school teacher.
