IF...Lecture Series Presents: Brittany Luby

Date and Time


Thinc Lab, 2nd Floor, McLaughlin Library

Poster of Dr. Brittany Luby's presentation on March 6, 2020


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.

Free admission and all are welcome!
