The Canadian Indigenous/Native Studies Association (CINSA) Conference 2008 - Visions of Sustainability

The Canadian Indigenous/Native Studies Association (CINSA) Conference 2008 will be hosted by the Community Economic and Social Development (CESD) department of Algoma University College. Come help celebrate the new initiatives that Algoma University (which is seeking independence from Laurentian University) and Shingwauk Education Trust is taking towards meeting Shingwauk's vision. The social, economic, political and cultural vibrancy of Indigenous communities across Canada have been profoundly affected by colonization, and many communities are struggling. At the same time the resilience of Indigenous peoples in Canada, and indeed around the world, continue to provide hope and inspiration to those who seek a sustainable future.

The Canadian Indigenous/Native Studies Association (CINSA) is a community of scholars committed to fostering the development of Aboriginal Studies as a discipline informed by, and respectful of, Indigenous intellectual traditions, and to create a place of respect and dignity for Aboriginal Peoples within Canada and the world. Among its objectives are the dissemination and discussion of research and facilitation of communication among members through such means as conferences. Since the 1980s, CINSA has grown and met regularly while the field of Indigenous Studies has exploded, nationally and internationally.
