Indigenous Peoples Day in Lekwungen & WSANEC territories

Tuesday, June 18 at 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

National Indigenous Peoples Day is on June 21st. Recognition of First Nations rights and title is embedded in Dogwood’s guiding principles and values.

Join Dogwood in Partnership with Raven Trust in a facilitated discussion on June 18th at from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm at 864 Queens Avenue in Victoria to learn:

– Land acknowledgment; whose land are we on? basics about Indigenous Peoples in the CRD
– First Nations rights and title: legal 101; and resurgence of Indigenous law
– Truth and Reconciliation process
– What does “reconciliation” mean?
– What does reconciliation mean to you? Discussion

When Indigenous Peoples day ends, we’d like to ensure that our commitment to working in allyship with First Nations does not. Therefore, we’d like to invite you to join us to further the work on June 25 at 864 Queens Avenue from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm to debrief your event experiences and create a plan for future action in Indigenous solidarity. Please RSVP here.
