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!

Schedule:

Friday, March 24

In alignment with the School of Social and Community Services’ (SSCS) commitment to the values of inclusion, compassion, respect, integrity, and self-awareness, SSCS will host two open forums designed to generate ideas and discussions relating to Indigenous history, contemporary presence, and post-secondary reconciliation. These sessions will provide faculty and staff with the opportunity to consider personal and professional commitments to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Calls to Action.
