Shawn A-in-chut Atleo: First Nations and the Future of Canadian Citizenship

The Stratford Festival and the Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) are delighted to present Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, at the eleventh LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium. National Chief Atleo will explore Canadian citizenship, responsibility and belonging as they relate to Canadian identity and our continued efforts at nation building. Moderated by author and ICC co-founder John Ralston Saul, the lecture will also feature an audience question period.

National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Shawn A-in-chut Atleo

The ICC’s LaFontaine-Baldwin Symposium is a signature event showcasing leading Canadian and international thinkers on the issues of citizenship, democracy, civic engagement and pluralism – the public good.

“This is a historic moment in the relationship between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians –  as important as the rethinking of the Francophone-Anglophone relationship that began in the 1960’s. Success or failure on Aboriginal questions will determine the direction of Canada. We are all Treaty people. Canadians need to hear what the National Chief, Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, has to say about the future of citizenship in this country.” – John Ralston Saul

Book your tickets here before they are all gone. Admission is $20.
