DECODE/DISCOVER/DETERMINE: A Workshop on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
October 23, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
UNDRIP affects everyone in Canada, not just Indigenous Peoples
Moderated by Lisa Blais and Susan Lindquist
This workshop will support persons of faith in their understanding so that they can endorse this declaration in action and move towards building right relations with Indigenous People. The goals of the workshop are to DECODE what UNDRIP is; to DISCOVER why it is, or should be, important to people of faith, and to DETERMINE steps to implement it, in church and in society. The recent heartbreaking discovery of hundreds of unmarked graves on Residential School grounds and the struggle of the Wet’suwet’en peoples in British Columbia are current examples of how the UN Declaration has particular application.
This workshop will be offered via Zoom, but there will be many opportunities for active participation. In person break out rooms are also a possibility. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Gillian 705 671 0185.
