Changing the Historical Narrative: A sign ceremonyExport this event to calendar

Friday, September 22, 2017 — 12:00 PM EDT

Conrad Grebel University College invites you to join us for a gathering to plant a new sign our Mennonite commemorative garden. In 2005 the College created a garden beneath a black walnut tree that marked the 200th anniversary of a land purchase along the Grand River by Mennonite settlers from Pennsylvania. As we continue to educate ourselves about injustice towards Indigenous peoples and recognize their history on this land where Conrad Grebel now sits, we acknowledge the need to change the historical narratives of Mennonite settlement in the region.

Join Grebel and the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre for a short ceremony to unveil a new plaque to signal our ongoing journey together to acknowledge shared and unshared histories.
