LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS WORKSHOP
27 September 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
How to Create Authentic and Transformative Land Acknowledgements
Land Acknowledgements are becoming increasingly commonplace at event openings and gatherings made by organizations and individuals alike. 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 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
- Identify a pathway forward to create transformative and actionable Land Acknowledgements
