On August 5, 2012, an armed gunmen went on a shooting rampage at the Sikh Gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Six people were killed and many other wounded either physically or emotionally. The man's motivation for shooting at the Gurdwara was unequivocally racially motivated. In order to reflect on this tragedy, the Centre for Indo-Canadian Studies hosted a forum titled We are all Sikhs: Blind spots in racial landscapes of “mistaken identities.” on October 16th, 2012. Faculty and staff members took a moment at this juncture to present their thoughts and emotions. Below are their papers:
