Indigenous representation and the AMS

Summary and response to the October 2nd discussion circle

The AMS held a discussion circle on October 2nd, 2018 in the First Nations Longhouse to consult with Indigenous students on the ways in which the society can become more inclusive. The AMS invited Dr. Aftab Erfan, UBC Director of Dialogue and Conflict Engagement, to facilitate the meeting. In attendance were members of the AMS Executive, staff, councillors, Indigenous students and community members.

At the discussion circle, four main areas were highlighted by Indigenous students in which the AMS should improve in order to create a representative and welcoming environment for Indigenous students. The suggestions as presented during the circle, as well as an analysis on how the AMS can move forward to implement them, are included in the full statement below.
