Welcome to the Supporting Each Other’s Journey Land Acknowledgment Series.

This webinar series is designed to:

  • acknowledge the power of Indigenous resilience, and understand the intended purpose, history and context around offering land acknowledgements
  • embark on the journey towards reconciliation, by using land acknowledgements with more purpose, conviction, and integrity
  • develop a personalized, relational, land acknowledgment

The webinar series is a component of the Wabishki Bizhiko Skaanj Learning Pathway, which uses four L’s as a foundational methodology: looking, listening, learning and leading.

This framework exemplifies a journey of uncovering knowledge through an Indigenous lens. The webinar series was formed with the 4 L’s as a guide, as reflected in the medicine wheel below.
