Event Time and Date

Monday, June 19 2017, 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
23 Days until this Event
By re-examining allyship, this workshop asks participants to reflect, question and identify their positionality and their responsibilities as an ally in reciprocal and meaningful relationships with Aboriginal people and communities. This includes ways in which to walk lightly as a guest on another’s territory in recognition that different and intersecting worldviews and knowledge systems exist. This workshop will include discussions focused on intercultural competency, the history of colonization in Canada and the connection, impact and consequences of this colonization in a contemporary context. Bringing the learning full circle, in order to ensure that the campus community continues to be welcoming and inclusive, there will be a discussion about protocols and best practices for inviting, hosting and engaging Aboriginal people at the University of Guelph (ie. sharing knowledge and cultural practices).
Facilitators: Maria Shallard and Cara Wehkamp from the Aboriginal Resource Centre at the University of Guelph
