Beyond Land Acknowledgements with Elder-in-Residence Auntie Max

August 29 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

Join Auntie Max, VIU Elder-in-Residence and Indigenous legal scholar, and the CIEL, in a discussion about how, why or whether to acknowledge Indigenous territories. We will discuss the practice of acknowledging territory, explore how to learn more about the territories we’re on, and deepen our inquiry into the assumptions, meanings and intentions behind territorial acknowledgements. The workshop will be offered twice in order to keep the group size small, so interested participants are invited to select one of the two possible times to register. Registered participants will be sent a few short resources to review prior to attending the workshop. This is an outdoor session and will be weather-dependent.
