Many educators are moved by Canada’s Call for Reconciliation with First Nations People. Together we will explore what it means to be a settler, Canada’s historical relationship with Indigenous peoples, where we are now, and where we can go from here. We will discuss what it looks like to practice cultural humility and leadership in reconciliation. We invite you to join us on a journey and consider how to move forward from Canada’s colonial past. In this interactive workshop participants are encouraged to engage with open ears, an open heart and an open mind.
