Event description

Description

The Indigenous peoples of Canada possess a rich heritage of traditions and customs, which have often been repressed. Sadly, the Church has often participated in this repression--leaving many Aboriginal people disconnected from their roots, and many non-Aboriginal people ignorant of how much these traditions bring to our common life.

This day-long event will help us grow in understanding and appreciation of First Nations culture. Participants will be introduced to sacred fire, tobacco teachings, drumming and more. We'll also hear from First Nations people who work to integrate their traditional ways with their Christian faith. The afternoon will include a presentation on the Indian Residential School system and its role in suppressing Aboriginal culture.

The event will take place "On the Land" in Fitzroy Harbour, to emphasize the connection between Indigenous traditions and the land. Participants must provide their own transportation. Lunch and supper will be provided.

Note: Those with special dietary restrictions or mobility concerns should contact us for more information on how we can best accommodate your needs.
