REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
Reconciliation is an important theme that will resonate as speakers and facilitators gather for the annual Indigenous Knowledge Gathering titled “Neekanisidok: All My Relations” from March 24-25, 2017. Hosted at Humber College, in partnership with the Aboriginal Resource Centre and The School of Social and Community Services, the gathering will bring together a broad range of voices and perspectives.
Join us as we explore understandings of reconciliation, change and innovation in the context of relationships and the greater world we live in. Together we will initiate an inclusive dialogue between Elders, community members, youth, staff, post-secondary students and faculty members.
Everyone is welcome to attend the gathering!
