A professor at Vancouver Island University, Marcia Crosby is of Tsimpshian and Haida ancestry. She was born and raised in her maternal grandmother’s territory, where the city of Prince Rupert now stands. Crosby completed her MA in Cultural History in 1993, focusing on issues of representation of Aboriginal people in the public sphere and Aboriginal title. In addition to teaching literature and history she has worked as a negotiator and researcher reviewing Aboriginal programs in public institutions. Crosby will talk about her ongoing commitment to the recording of more accurate histories of all Native peoples and the way those accounts have intersected with those of Non-Natives.
