The University of Saskatchewan’s Archaeology and Anthropology department marked its 50th anniversary by apologizing for the actions of their peers when it comes to conducting research on Indigenous people.
Through a statement issued at the Gordon Oakes Red Bear Student Centre last month, staff apologized for the wrong doings of their predecessors.
“The university has embraced the idea of reconciliation and encouraged all of us to embrace it,” professor James Waldram said. “It seemed logical to us that we would frame an official response.”
