UBC/SFU 18th Virtual Indigenous Graduate Student Symposium (IGSS)
Given the impacts of current global events, the need to reflect on our collective and individual actions and the roles we play has become increasingly important. The 2021 IGSS theme, Collective Response-Abilities: Intervention for Indigenous Wellbeing, explores our individual and collective responsibilities for the restoration and maintenance of our communal and personal wellbeing.

With this in mind, the conference welcomes all students from across faculties, institutions, and campuses to reflect on what intervention for wellbeing means, with respect to their work in the many spaces and intersections of being we occupy. Individually, we are given a diversity of gifts and abilities to respond to our collective needs, this conference explores and celebrates these gifts.

We invite participants that consider the following streams:
• Our Responsibility to the wellbeing of ourselves, our community, and our people. This stream asks, “What should we be doing?”
• Our Ability to support the wellbeing of ourselves, our community, and our people. This stream asks, “What are we able to offer?”
• Our Response for the wellbeing of ourselves, our community, and our people. This stream asks, “What are/will we be doing?”

On Saturday, March 6th, 2021 hear Dr. Alex Wilson address the theme of the conference, followed by a Q&A.

On Saturday, March 13th, 2021 listen to our Emerging Scholars Panelists Drs. Lyana Patrick, Gina Starblanket, and Matthew Wildcat speak about their various experiences in academia and how their work is impacting Canadian Indigenous communities, followed by a Q&A.
