FIRST NATIONS HOUSING: PAST, PRESENT, & POSSIBILITIES Sunday, January 19, 2020 - 2:00pm
First Nations Housing – Past, Present, & Possibilities is a dynamic journey through the historical timeline of on-reserve housing in Canada. Sylvia Olsen, Ph.D. weaves social, economic, and intercultural relations into her story of how government determined housing outcomes from the 1930s to present. Adam Olsen, MLA, Tsartlip, Sto’lo Chief Mark Point, Skowkale and Fran Hunt-Jinnouchi, Executive Directive of Aboriginal Coalition to End Homelessness, Kwakiutl/Quatsino, will share their expertise and personal stories about changes taking place in Indigenous communities and on how Canadians can learn from First Nations to do housing differently.
Proceeds from this event will go to the Aboriginal Coalition to End Homelessness Society.
