We welcome you to attend two online workshops (May 3 & 5) created and presented by Dr Rose Roberts (PhD) and Dr Stryker Calvez (PhD), Cree and Métis experts who have presented land acknowledgement workshops at the University of Saskatchewan for many years. These workshops are designed to help people personalize their land acknowledgments to make them meaningful.
This online series invites participants to reflect and act on the role and meaning of land acknowledgements in our personal lives and in our faith communities. In the workshops you will connect with others to consider our relationships with place, land, people and spirit, and to learn how to make our land acknowledgments authentic and genuine.
Each workshop will be 1.5 hours and will require your active participation as well as a personal commitment of approximately 2-3 hours of homework for learning and self-reflection prior to the first event. The homework is mandatory and includes the following 3 tasks:
- Watch these videos: https://teaching.usask.ca/curriculum/indigenous_voices/land-acknowledgements/module.php
- Spend time outside in a quiet place to reflect.
- Write your own land acknowledgment.
*Plan on 2 hours for homework. The videos run ~1 hour.
**Registration deadline: April 30th. Register early (before April 25th) to join a “Watch Party” on April 26th where we will watch the videos and discuss them as a group in preparation for Workshop #1.
We hope to see you there!
