Three afternoon breakout sessions (1-3:15 pm)
Reconciliation in the Classroom (Niigaan Sinclair)
In order to achieve reconciliation, it is of fundamental importance that educators receive information and interpretation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), as it relates to them. This breakout session provides educators with ideas on how to
incorporate the final report of the TRC into classrooms, schools, and other educational settings. The workshop will be participatory and experiential, while also assisting with education planning.
Land-based Education in Schools (Dr. Alex Wilson)
Dr. Alex Wilson’s workshop is now full.
This workshop will discuss and explore how land-based education can be used as an effective anti-oppressive, anti-racist form of education.
The Box and the Circle: Rebalancing and Healing (Full Circle Team)
This experiential workshop explores the effects of Residential Schools and Canada’s Policy of Assimilation and how we can work together to impact meaningful change. Topics covered include: the Indigenous family system, Indigenous and Western world views, effects of trauma and tools to reduce trauma.
