Land Acknowledgements: Beyond the Script (Facilitated Online, 2 hours, November 30 and December 14 from 12:00-1:00pm PST)

 

Important Note: This workshop is designed for people who know why territorial acknowledgements are important. If you require more background knowledge, we recommend you take our 7-hour workshop, coming in January 2021.

This course listing is for sessions on November 30th and December 14th from 12:00-1:00pm PST.

Join three Indigenous and non-Indigenous facilitators to develop your own land acknowledgement from the heart, following 3  relationality themes: 1. our relation to the land we are on and where we learned (territory), 2. our relation to each other (kinship), 3. and our relation to the work of decolonizing and engaging (values). You will learn how to introduce yourself in a relational way, incorporating these 3 relationality themes, which you will develop in a supportive environment.

Facilitators

  • Alicia Hibbert
  • Becca Shortt
  • Kyle Durocher

Audience

Learning Objectives

  1. In developing a land acknowledgement, participants are learning and reflecting on how to position themselves to Indigenous engagement.

  2. Help people move forward with Indigenous engagement through one step in decolonizing your perspective.

Commitment to Engage
