Event description
This intimate workshop with bestselling author Jesse Thistle will allow us to understand the definition of Indigenous Homelessness.

About this Event

The London Homeless Coalition has made better understanding Indigenous Homelessness a priority for this year. We are honoured to host the author of the Canadian Definition of Indigenous Homelessness, Jesse Thistle, for a morning workshop and working lunch to understand this definition and what it means to us in London.

Tickets are free but are limited to 70 people. Lunch will be provided.

Jesse Thistle is Métis-Cree and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Equity Studies at York University in Toronto. He is a PhD candidate in the History program at York University where he is working on theories of intergenerational and historic trauma of the Métis people. Jesse has won the P.E. Trudeau and Vanier doctoral scholarships, and he is a governor general medalist. Jesse is the author of the Definition of Indigenous Homelessness in Canada published through the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness, and his historical research has been published in numerous academic journals, book chapters, and featured on CBC Ideas, CBC Campus, and Unreserved. His most recent work is a bestselling memoir published by Simon and Schuster entitled From the Ashes: My Story of Being Métis, Homeless, and Finding My Way. You can follow him on Twitter at @Michifman.
