Hanley Hall, St. Paul’s College, University of Manitoba

Join us as we celebrate the 2022 J.W. Dafoe Book Prize winning book Seen But Not Seen: Influential Canadians and the First Nations from the 1840s to Today, written by Dr. Donald B. Smith (University of Toronto Press).

Seen but Not Seen explores the history of Indigenous marginalization and why non-Indigenous Canadians failed to recognize Indigenous societies and cultures as worthy of respect. Dr. Smith will begin the conversation with a presentation on his book, highlighting the experience of Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance, along with Lance’s connection to Winnipeg and to the University of Manitoba. There will be time for questions and discussion with the audience.

Refreshments will be served.  Masks are required for attendance.

Free Parking is available after 4:30pm in Lot Q (across from St. Paul’s College).
