About this Event

Victoria Reconciliation Dialogues:

#2: The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP) and the City

Monday, November 18, 2019 at 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. approx.

(Doors open at 5:30 p.m.)

Victoria City Hall

Guided by: Brianna Dick and Mayor Lisa Helps

This conversation will provide an overview of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, known as UNDRIP, and will engage participants in reflecting on the UNDRIP as it relates to their own work and everyday lives, as well as to the work of the City in Reconciliation with the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations and urban Indigenous Peoples.

Guided by members of Lekwungen Nations and the City Family, Mayor Lisa Helps, members of City Council and special guests, the conversations will seek to build the community’s knowledge and understanding of Reconciliation – what it is, why it is needed, and why community conversations about Reconciliation are important.

The Dialogues will provide opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to come together to share their ideas and stories, and explore how we as a community can make the culture, history and modern reality of local Indigenous Peoples become present and apparent throughout the city, and understood and valued in people’s everyday lives.

Note: The end time will depend on the length of the conversation.
