Carolyn Podruchny is a professor at York University. Her research focuses on the relationships created between Indigenous peoples and French colonialists in North America. Her personal and professional goal is to make sense of Canada’s colonial past and to find a way forward in reconciliation by exploring the history of encounters. She is currently writing a book on the encounters of Anishinaabe and French stories in the context of the fur trade. Podruchny will discuss Maria Hupfield’s exhibition The One Who Keeps On Giving.
