This webinar series is designed to:
- acknowledge the power of Indigenous resilience, and understand the intended purpose, history and context around offering Land Acknowledgments;
- offer the participants an opportunity to embark on the journey towards reconciliation, by using Land Acknowledgments with more purpose, conviction, and integrity; and
- develop a personalized Land Acknowledgment which demonstrates the relationship and connection to the land.
The webinar series is a component of the Wabishki Bizhiko Skaanj Learning Pathway, which uses four L’s as a foundational approach: looking, listening, learning and leading.
This framework is used to teach and translate knowledge through an Indigenous lens. The circle represents balance and is often conceptualized as a medicine wheel/circle work. The webinar series was formed with the 4 L’s as a guide, as reflected in the medicine wheel below.
