On February 16, 2023, Emmanuel College of Victoria University, at the University of Toronto hosted its fourth session in a series of panels featuring Indigenous-Muslim perspectives on common issues of importance to the contemporary world. In this two-hour conversation, panelists will discuss how Elders pass on teachings about peace and what key concepts are involved.

The panel is moderated by Dr. Katherine Bullock, and features Mohammed Abu-Nimer (School of International Service at the American University, Washington, DC.); Fatima Ahmed (Lakehead University); and Bonnie Jane Maracle (Wolf Clan, Mohawk Nation at Tyendinaga Territory, Traditional Teacher in Residence at UofT First Nations House).
