We begin with ritual, a tipi teaching, and conversation led by local elders and knowledge keepers. Our interactive panel discussions with keynote panelists will be featured on the first and third days of the event. Panelists will speak to their experiences of working on decolonizing from their various perspectives: Indigenous, global, racialization, and allyship.
On June 21, attendees will be invited to participate in the vibrant learning-spaces of local community celebrations marking National Indigenous Peoples Day.
There will be opportunities to participate in workshops with leaders who are working to embody decolonizing at the grassroots. Using storytelling, lived experience, and reflection, we will work to help each other imagine another possible world.
