You Don't Know What You Don't Know Pt.1 & 2

**You Don't Know What You Don't Know Part 1 is a prerequisite for part 2***

This is a two-part online 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. For the safety and comfort of participants, this workshop will not be recorded. Webcams are expected to be left on during the workshop, to promote connectivity.
