January 29, 2015

Seminar #3 : Don't Step on Our Land”: Indigenous Territoriality, Aboriginal Title, and the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project

  • Speaker : Tyler McCreary, PhD, UBC Geography Post -doc
  • Date : Thursday, Jan. 29th
  • Time : 12:30 ~ 2:20 pm
  • Location : Blusson Hall 10921
  • Blurb : This talk argues that Indigenous claims present the greatest challenge to the expansion of Canadian regimes of resource extraction, opening new spaces of contestation and negotiation around energy exports and the environment. I do this by placing the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Project within the context of Indigenous struggles for recognition of their relations to traditional lands.
