This event is part of the Co-Curricular-Making—Honouring Indigenous Connections to Land, Culture, and the Relational Self SSHRC funded research project. Starting in the fall of 2021, this project has brought local Elders, Knowledge Keepers, university researchers, local partners and participating educators together to seek respectful ways for educators to align their teaching practices toward reconciliation.
By the end of the five-year project, teachers and their students will have gained deeper understandings of Syilx culture with teachings that connect land, culture and understandings of self in the world.
