Event description

Description

Please join us on Monday October 16, 2017 for a day of sharing as part of Engage for Change, a Reconciliation Journey Project, hosted by the City of Kingston.

This First Peoples Talking Circle has been designed with local input from the Indigenous community and will be facilitated by Three Things Consulting, an Indigenous owned company who works nationally on reconciliation projects and calls Kingston home.

This is part of a larger process being facilitated by the City of Kingston that supports all professionals, community members and specific populations, (youth, newcomers, seniors, business leaders etc.) with an opportunity to build their awareness, understanding and competency as they walk towards the path of reconciliation. Each Talking Circle is designed to provide participants with an awareness of Indigenous cultures and beliefs, history of Indigenous peoples’ movements prior to European settlement and encouraging the development of mutual awareness, understanding and appreciation among all participants.

Key areas that will be focused on include:

  • The Indigenous peoples of Canada (with a focus on Kingston and surrounding Territories)
  • Cultural differences in community, communication and collaboration
  • Myths and facts driving relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Kingston and throughout Canada
  • Ideas, experiences and input into putting Reconciliation into action across the Kingston region

Registration and full-day participation is mandatory for this event. Priority will be given to participants who have not joined previous Talking Circles.

Please contact tbrennan@cityofkingston.ca with information on accessibility and food allergies/preferences for the day if applicable. Thank you and look forward to seeing you October 16th.
