Veritas Series for Faith and Culture


Incorporating Indigenous Spirituality into Church Liturgy and Practice
September 22, 2016 with Senator Nick Sibbeston in the Joanne and Peter Kenny TheatreSponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph.

Before contact, Indigenous people had their own spiritual beliefs and practices connected to their relationships with the water, land and the animals that surrounded them. While most Indigenous people embraced Christianity, many continued to practice their spirituality to honour the Creator in their own way. In a post-residential school world where the relationship between Indigenous people and Christianity has been tested and damaged, the Church needs to acknowledge and honour Indigenous practices. Including Indigenous cultural beliefs in the Liturgy is essential if the Church is to remain relevant to people's daily lives.

Senator Nick Sibbeston  is a member of the Dene Nation from Fort Simpson in the Northwest Territories with a long history of involvement in public and church life. As a Residential School survivor, Sibbeston went on to become a lawyer and a politician, serving as Premier of the territory from 1985-87. He has represented the NWT in the Senate since 1999. He wrote about his relationship to religion in his recent autobiography, You Will Wear a White Shirt.


Joseph Boyden is an Award-Winning Novelist and will present the inaugural Principal's Lecture on Contemporary Indigenous Issues for this year's first King's Hour.
 
Joseph Boyden will explore the relationship between art, education and survival through the lens of his personal experience with a focus on the historical and contemporary experience of First Nations peoples. The discussion will reflect the perils and inner strengths of marginalized groups and how the liberal arts and creativity open a door to growth and joy. Joseph's award-winning writing career contains a common theme of the inequality of the First Nations peoples. He is best known for his books Three Day Road, Through Black Spruce, which won the 2008 Scotiabank Giller Prize, and The Orenda, which was named the winner of CBC Radio's Canada Reads 2014.

This King's Hour will take place in the Joanne and Peter Kenny Theatre on Wednesday, September 28th at 3:30 p.m.
Open House
