Join Kandice - Manager of the Aboriginal Student Center - and Jaydene - Organizer with Laurier Students Public Interest Research Group (LSPIRG) - in a short, interactive workshop for faculty and staff to provide insight into land acknowledgements. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of:
- Why land acknowledgements are important and the reasons we do them
- How to acknowledge the specific territory Laurier Brantford resides on
- The reasons a land acknowledgement is just the beginning of a longer conversation
This workshop is part of the larger campaign - Decolonize, Don't Indigenize - being launched on campus this year. There will be a light lunch and refreshments served at the meeting and we hope to keep it short and sweet so that participants can attend over their lunch and snack breaks.
