You Don't Know What You Don't Know Part 2

Part 1 is a prerequisite for part 2. If you have taken part 1 this term or in a previous term, you are welcome and encouraged to participate.

“You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know” is a three-part workshop that journeys through First Nations, Inuit, and Metis relations with settlers. As the title indicates, you don't know, what you don't know so everyone is welcome. You will be introduced to the concept of Miskasowin (wholistic self-evaluation) that will define content, context, and relationship promoting further action, accountability, and responsibilities as a treaty person in this land now known as Canada.

Part 2 – Colonization, Miskasowin, and Reconcili-Action

 This workshop will provide a foundation of Indigenous knowledge and an opportunity to unlearn colonial history regarding Indigenous peoples.  This workshop will further require participants to consider how their Miskasowin, both personal and professional, impact the journey and belonging of the students and communities you work with.

This is a virtual workshop facilitated on Zoom.
