COVID-19 Notification and Update

Dear Indigenous Star Knowledge Symposium Participants and Supporters:

As the COVID-19 crisis deepens worldwide, and uncertainly looms about travel and conferences, we wanted to update you on the status of the Indigenous Star Knowledge Symposium in Ottawa, which is scheduled for September 15-18, 2020.

At this time, the ISK symposium committee, UOttawa, and Ingenium - Canada's Museums of Science and Innovation are monitoring the situation. In order to be prepared for many possible outcomes, we are developing conference contingency plans in order to be responsive to the situation. This may involve significant changes to the program as well as timing. In addition, we will not be activating registration until this situation becomes more clear.

Please check our website for updates, and we will keep you posted on major developments.

Thank you for your patience and support.

A gathering of Knowledge Keepers, Educators and Indigenous Scholars to share and exchange towards reclaiming, preserving, and revitalizing Star Knowledge with Indigenous communities worldwide.


Organising Committee:

Wilfred Buck | Peter Decontie | Carola Knockwood | Michel Labrecque | Annette S. Lee | Lindsey McGregor | David Pantalony | Daniella Scalice
