Implicit Bias: Stereotypes & Monuments with Claudia Fox Tree

Indigenous people have always lived on this land, but their history, culture, and contributions are not seen. Instead, stereotypes and implicit bias, imposed by the dominant culture, define their identity. The journey of developing a counter narrative to missing information and misinformation about the First Nations people of this land begins with un-erasing indigenous voices and learning truths we were not taught. It continues by having conversations with families, friends, and community members to confront “invisibility” and implicit bias. Join Claudia as she takes back the narrative and focuses on strategies to challenge bias and make contributions visible.
