Land Acknowledgements Workshop
17 June 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Land Acknowledgements are becoming increasingly commonplace at event openings and gatherings made by organizations and individuals alike. While the majority of Land Acknowledgements when performed well are impactful in creating transformative spaces, there are many conversations and considerations surrounding ones that feel performative. Land Acknowledgements are crucial to visibilizing Nations that have cared for our land for thousands and thousands of years. But, where do we start, and how do we respectfully do this?
Join Erika Doehring, Gwich’in granddaughter, Sandlanee Gid, Daughter of the Dawn, and Mya Bordeau for an interactive workshop to reflect on our relationship to our location while we strengthen our connections to the land, ourselves, and each other. Acknowledging the land where we live, play, and work is crucial to establishing a relationship of trust for your business within the community.
What Will I Learn?
- Discover ways to learn about the nations that have cared for the land since time immemorial
