Guided Walk through the Highland Creek Ravine: Quieting: A Settler History of the UTSC Campus

Programming is part of the exhibitions Quieting and This Place, Neyaashiinigmiing


Meet at the Doris McCarthy Gallery for a tour of This Place, Neyaashiinigmiing. Then head outside for a guided walk of the Highland Creek Ravine. This walk makes visible the legal and moral geography of UTSC campus lands in relation to the 'quieting' of an Indigenous presence. It draws on archival research conducted by Sociology faculty and undergraduate student researchers. Told from the perspective of a settler to the land, particular attention is paid to the Miller Lash Estate as an example of a colonial attitude to land that erases the historical theft and ongoing dispossession of Indigenous peoples.
