About the Event
Facilitated by Cheryl Marek (Oshawa, ON).
In 2015, as part of its commitment to support the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, PWRDF developed the resource: Mapping the Ground We Stand On. Using PowerPoint animation, videos, small group discussion, talking circle and more this workshop, also known as the Mapping Exercise, invites participants to explore Indigenous presence on the map of Turtle Island/Canada, the history of settler arrival, and how each fits into ongoing narratives. The concepts of Doctrine of Discovery, terra nullius, Indigenous Knowledge and Ways of Knowing are explored. Listening, understanding and reflecting enables individuals and groups to imagine next steps: meaningful actions on their personal and collective reconciliation journeys as church, families, societies, that will foster just, respectful and healing relationships for all peoples - Indigenous and settler.
