Land as Teacher: Learning Stories of Place
Come join Lynne Cormier (Anishinaabekwe from Matachewan First Nation), Ann Cummings (Scottish/Welsh ancestry, living in Wewebijwong, Mnidoo Mnissing - Little Current, Manitoulin Island), Hopi Martin (Lenape/Briton/European living on Gaabikanang Ziibi, Humber River, in Toronto), and Diane Kashin (Jewish/Eastern European living on the Oak Ridges Moraine), for a Virtual Sharing Circle about our relationships to the land. This Circle invites participants to implicate themselves beyond the practice of 'land acknowledgement' by developing relationships with the Indigenous stories of where we are living that are so often hidden by myths of colonization. The practice of remembering 'who we are' and 'where we are' is a key first step on the journey towards Truth and Reconciliation between all Nations/Peoples. What if we begin practising this Traditional Indigenous protocol in our efforts to develop ethical land-based learning opportunities for young children?
Come join us on Saturday July 10 between 10am and 11:30am (EST) as we 'zoom in' from the land!
