Statement of Respect and Inclusion

“Onoto Watanna’s Cattle @100″ was organized on the traditional, unceded, and ancestral territory of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓-speaking xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people and the traditional territories of the peoples of Treaty 7, which include the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprised of the Siksika, the Piikani, and the Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, the Stoney Nakoda (including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations), and the Métis Nation of Alberta Region 3. The conference will take place in the City of Calgary, which is home to the peoples of Treaty 7 and the Métis Nation of Alberta Region 3.

Our conference strives to host inclusive, welcoming events. To this end, no hate speech, abuse, bullying or harassment of any kind will be tolerated, including but not limited to racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism. Anyone found to be conducting themselves inappropriately will be warned, once. Should the behaviour continue, the individual will be removed from the event. Should you experience any harassment, please contact us.

Please reach out to conference organizers for any accommodations and accessibility requests.

Content Warning

As a conference focused on histories and issues of racial exclusion, cultural appropriation, and diaspora and migration experiences, as well as stereotypes and problematic material in Winnifred Eaton’s own writing and career, speakers may raise sensitive and controversial issues. Conference participants are expected to treat each other respectfully in all interactions. Disagreements can occur among participants without being disagreeable and offensive.
