Land Acknowledgements - Why do we do them?
June 15 from 07:00 pm to 08:00 pm
Collier Street United Church’s Social Action Task Force invites you to join us on Tuesday June 15 at 7 pm
Land Acknowledgements – Why are we doing them?
More and more often, people are utilizing land acknowledgements in openings. But if we don’t understand why we do them, what they should include, and where to find the pertinent information, how do we know we are doing them well? In this short presentation, Kelly will help us understand the importance of land acknowledgements and help us determine our own relationship to the words we use.
