In the News

Wab Kinew is a Canadian Indigenous leader, hip hop artist, broadcaster and politician who grew up experiencing the hurt of the residential school system in his home along with racism in his broader community.

Well-known Indigenous leader, artist and journalist Wab Kinew will be speaking at Selkirk College this month. Seeking to engage with Canadians to dispel Native stereotypes and work toward a world that’s compassionate, Kinew brings a wealth of experience to two conferences – one aimed at furthering the causes of peace and justice and the other to empower Indigenous youth.

The largest North American gathering of people interested in furthering the causes of peace, justice and non-violence will be held in Nelson this fall as the Mir Centre for Peace hosts the International Peace & Justice Studies Association Conference.

As we look toward the future, building the world we want involves a balance between activism opposing the establishment and forging ahead with new ideas. An international conference examining the tension between the two will be held in September at the Mir Centre for Peace at Selkirk College bringing in high profile guest speakers Wab Kinew and Sandra Moran.

What Students Say

Selkirk College Peace Studies Testimonial Hailey McLeod Thumbnail
Peace Studies is not a discipline that teaches you what to think; it is a discipline that teaches you new ways to look at and understand the world around you.

Mir Centre Testimonial - Shamus Orion
I loved my experience at Selkirk College; obtaining my diploma helped me to engage more deeply with myself and the world. I am now completing my Masters Degree, with the hopes of one day teaching in the Peace Studies program.
