She hails from Treaty 8, Fort McMurray, home of Canada’s tar sands, and has been involved in a number of Indigenous led theater, film, radio, and music projects across Canada. She will be speaking on the topic of Indigenous resistance and resilience to petro-imperialism though the arts.
Olivia Marie Golosky will speak in the undergraduate “Oil Culture” class, taught by Canadian Studies Hildebrand Fellow Kimberly Richards on Tuesday November 21 at 11:00 AM.

Affiliates of Canadian Studies may attend Olivia Marie Golosky’s by RSVP’ing to Elliott Smith at elliott.smith@berkeley.edu or 510-642-0531 on a first-come, first-serve basis. Seats are limited, and RSVP’s must be received by 4 PM on Monday November 20.
Canada in the Classroom brings guest speakers into existing UC Berkeley classes, in any discipline, to speak on Canadian topics. Berkeley faculty who request Canada in the Classroom support, usually in the form of a modest stipend to visiting experts, are customarily asked to make their class open to affiliates of the Canadian Studies program on the day of the guest lecture.
