Indigenous Education for Newcomers Launch Celebration

July 29, 2017, 10:00am - July 29, 2017, 5:30pm

Join us at the Genesis Centre for the official launch celebration of the Indigenous Education for Newcomers Initiative. Working in partnership with Making Treaty 7, University of Calgary, Calgary Police Services, the Calgary Foundation, Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth, Calgary Immigrant Educational Society, and the 12 Community Safety Initiative, along with City Councillor Brian Pincott and Federal MP and Cabinet Minister Kent Hehr, our ultimate goal is to support efforts aimed at ending cycles of systemic discrimination and abuse faced by Indigenous people through culturally appropriate educational workshops on Indigenous issues, meaningful partnerships that seek to create alliances for public education and awareness among both partners and within the broader community. This initiative will combine culturally-appropriate educational workshops on matters identified by Indigenous people as relevant to newcomers’ understanding of the history of Canada’s Indigenous community. This series of workshops will include issues related to historic injustice and trauma and Indigenous peoples’ rich history and culture. The rationale is that engaging in ongoing public dialogues, enhancing professional development and training for public servants, strengthening intercultural competency in Indigenous mattersare all part of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s call to action aimed at addressing historic trauma and historic injustice of Canada’s Indigenous peoples (TRC, 2015) This event is open to the public and admission is free. Use North entrance of the Genesis Centre for quick access. Lunch will be provided for the first 250 people to regsiter at the link for Evenbrite provided above.
