JOIN US IN STARTING OFF THE NEW CALENDAR YEAR FOR THE NEXT IN OUR SERIES OF DIALOGUES ON RECONCILING WAYS OF KNOWING
We are pleased to announce the next dialogue in our Reconciling Ways of Knowing: Indigneous Knowledge and Science Online Forum series: ‘Connecting Spiritually with the Land and Each Other.’
Join Elder Dr. Dave Courchene, Grandmother Katherine Whitecloud, Dr. Blair Stonechild in dialogue with Moderator Shaunna Morgan Siegers on our essential and spiritual connection with the land and each other.
“Connecting Spiritually with the Land and Each Other” will discuss our fundamental connection to and inseparability from the world and each other and how this understanding carries a spiritual dimension for Indigenous Peoples, to which we remain connected through our ceremonies. This is a foundational understanding present in many Indigenous ways of knowing but often missing from the dominant worldview that has shaped Canadian environmental policy.
After an initial discussion, our other Reconciling Ways of Knowing Convenors, Miles Richardson, OC; Dr. David Suzuki; and Dr. Nancy Turner will share their thoughts and insights on this discussion of relation and spiritual connection. Moderator Shaunna Morgan Siegers will then turn to our audience-participants for thoughts and questions for the speakers.
Our intention is to hold space for this discussion to take shape as guided by spiritual direction, to begin the new calendar year off in a good way, as we continue with our Reconciling Ways of Knowing: Indigenous Knowledge and Science Online Forum Series into 2021. We hope you can join us.
This is a ticketed event to cover the costs of organizing and hosting. Tickets are $10 per person. For anyone able to contribute at a higher level to support our organizing efforts, we also provide a $25 and $50 registration option and gratefully appreciate your support for our efforts to organize this ongoing critical dialogue.
