Event description

Description

Indigenous Cultural Awareness Session

The history of Turtle Island begins prior to 1492 and is being continuously written as every day passes. We are entering into an era of Reconciliation that was brought forth by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) and their 94 Calls to Action to address the legacy of the Indian Residential School System. Through this interactive and engaging session, we will bring you through the history of Turtle Island through an Indigenous perspective and trauma-informed approach to investigate the realities of Indigenous communities prior to contact. We will discuss how the impacts of colonization, government legislation and trauma have placed Indigenous people in the margins of society and showcase the beauty and resilience of Indigenous ways of being and knowing.
