Have you heard about the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action? The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples? Do you wonder what they mean to you as your role as an early childhood educator or administrator? In this interactive workshop participants are encouraged to engage with an open mind and their questions about truth and reconciliation, to join the journey of a Canada moving away from its colonial past. Together we will explore what it means to be a settler, Canada’s historical relationship with Indigenous people, where we are now, and can go from here. We will discuss what it looks like to practice cultural humility, leadership in reconciliation, and build a safe space for Indigenous children and families in your program.
Please join us as we welcome Kirsten Bevelander, Provincial Child Care Advisor, and Rachel Marchand, Regional Child Care Advisor, from BC Aboriginal Child Care Society to our community to share this workshop.
