You are invited to join PWRDF for the launch of "Mapping the Ground We Stand On – A Virtual Workshop."
The workshops will be held on Zoom on Monday, May 31, 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. ET and Friday, June 4, 2021, 1:30 to 4:00 p.m. ET.
In 2015, as part of its commitment to support the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, PWRDF developed the “education for reconciliation” resource Mapping the Ground We Stand On. This interactive 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 their relationship to one another. It also offers an opportunity for learning and reflection on the concepts of Terra Nullius (empty land), the Doctrine of Discovery and Indigenous knowledge.
We are proud to announce that this workshop
has recently been adapted for Zoom.
The workshops are limited to 25 people. To accommodate the greatest participation possible, we are offering two launch workshops and hope that you, our staff and key volunteers, can participate to help us get the word out. Please register below for one workshop only. A Zoom link will be sent to you.
