Barstow School Board invites RNESU community members, parents, teachers and students to a three part virtual workshop on Indigenous Land Acknowledgements May 4, 18 and June 1 5:30-7:30 pm.

Indigenous Land Acknowledgements: What? Why? And Now What?

The act of creating and speaking an Indigenous land acknowledgement is a practice that is becoming more common in the eastern parts of Turtle Island. While we experience it as a moment at the beginning of a gathering, it is actually part of a bigger process for our society and for the individual.

This three-part workshop series will address the history and purpose of land acknowledgments, examine our unique contexts, and support one another as we each craft a research-based, personalized and heartfelt land acknowledgement. By acknowledging Indigenous people’s relationship to land, and exploring our own relationship to land, we will enter into a process of truth and reconciliation. Time and space will be created to consider the connections to and implications on our teaching practices.

This workshop series is designed for educators, but will benefit anyone interested in deepening their relationship to place. Presented in partnership with Gedakina and Shelburne Farms, this program is offered as a 3-part series, with each session building upon the foundation of the previous session(s). There will be land-based homework to complete between sessions. We ask that you commit to participating in all three sessions when registering.

Workshop Rhythm: 3 sessions; 2 hours per session; gathering every other week on Zoom
