Event description
Tipi Teachings is back with new socially distanced activities for community members to enjoy! Come learn about Indigenous culture & history

About this Event

AANIIN HELLO / WELCOME

Tipi Teachings is designed to reconnect First Nations people in urban communities back to the valuable teachings, culture and knowledge systems that were lost in residential schools in a good way. Tipi Teachings supports living a good life and being aware of one's identity as a First Nations person by making cultural programs available in Edmonton communities. Come participate in story-telling, make your own medicine wheel, learn teachings of the tipi and engage in sharing circles and learn more about the history of colonialism and how community programs can help reconcile some of Canada's difficult history. Also, these events help support non-indigenous community members building better relations with Indigenous community members and learning more about their role as neighbours and how to be good neighbors.

Catered individually packed "powwow" specialty foods will be served by an indigenous caterer at some events.
