Indigenous & Newcomer Friendships wrapped up in Thunder Bay
The final of five Indigenous and Newcomer Friendships events was held on March 22 in Thunder Bay, on the traditional territory of the Fort William First Nation. Entitled Moving Forward Together, it attracted more than 200 people to Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School. Participants expressed strong interest in attending more events like this, and some asked about receiving training to facilitate the KAIROS Blanket Exercise.
It was a wonderful conclusion to the KAIROS Friendships series, which brought together Indigenous and newcomer communities in dialogue and friendship. The series was organized by KAIROS in partnership with local communities, and with the financial support of Canadian Heritage through the Canada 150 Fund.
Stay tuned for more details in the May KAIROS Times, and a video this summer that captures the feedback and spirit of Indigenous and Newcomer Friendships series.
