IF...Lecture Series Presents: Brittany Luby
Date and Time
Thinc Lab, 2nd Floor, McLaughlin Library
In this talk, "Manomin Stewardship and Growing-up Anishinaabe," Dr. Luby reveals how manomin (wild rice) harvesting reinforced cultural lessons about interdependence and reciprocity. Through crop stewardship, children learned they could contribute to the wellbeing of their family and to the survival of their nation.
Brittany Luby, Anishinaabe-kwe, is an award-nominated educator who joined the University of Guelph in 2017. Outside of the classroom, Luby seeks to stimulate public discussion of Indigenous issues through her critical and creative work. Her historical work can be found in periodicals such as the Canadian Bulletin of Medical History and the Canadian Journal of Native Studies. Encounter, a piece of historical fiction for children, is available through Tundra and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.
