We Are Of Earth & Sky
Thursday, July 18, 2019 @ 6-9 p.m.
Toronto Centre for Learning & Development, 540 Dundas Street East

This will be an activity driven three hour workshop which utilizes an anti-oppression framework through an indigenous lens to engage those who work, create and live on indigenous homelands. Knowledge seed conversations around: Colonization on Turtle Island, What does it mean to be Treaty People?, How to become an intentional accomplice as oppose to an ally?, Overstanding Privilege and Positionality. Participants will come away with a basic understanding of indigenous ways of reconnecting to our humanity, and developing relationship building in a mindful, authentic way, enabling us to move forward as stewards of these homelands in solidarity with Indigenous People and the Land. Food will be provided.

Faciliators: Mahlikah Awe:ri and Karen Villanueva
