CAE® CPD: 1 per webinar
Land acknowledgement is rooted in an ancient Indigenous diplomatic custom and has been a way for visitors to a land to recognize the traditional territories of local Indigenous people and their descendants. It is a verbal or written statement acknowledging the ancestral and traditional land of Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Métis, Inuit). A land acknowledgment is a respectful act of reconciliation and can be utilized at meetings, events, conferences, forums, reports, and communications both in-person and online.
There is a dynamic conversation emerging in Indigenous circles and amongst allies about tokenism or lack of meaning in many land acknowledgements used today. Indigenous Works’ approach to land acknowledgement is that it should be a process of cultural, historical and linguistic revitalization.
By the end of the program, learners will be able to:
- Understand the historical significance of land acknowledgments
- Understand the importance of land acknowledgements in the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Calls to Action
- Find reputable resources to begin exploring their own location and region
