PATHFINDER:

Finding Your Way to Economic Reconciliation

On Sept 22, we had an engaging afternoon exploring Economic Reconciliation with Indigenous and non-Indigenous speakers sharing their experiences and wisdom for moving forward. You can watch the recording here

On Tues, Nov 19 at noon – 1pm we’ll reconvene with attendees for an informal conversation. How did they integrate ideas from the conference into their business practise? What challenges are they facing and what opportunities have arisen? REGISTER HERE for the conversation on Nov 16. 

This conversation isn’t just for Pathfinder attendees. This is an open invitation to continue the conversation around Economic Reconciliation and how we can deepen our impact and move forward.

LET’S TALK:

Reconciliation Conversations

Last Wednesday of Every Month at 11 am

Join us on the last Wed of each month at 11 am to talk about truth and reconciliation and how to move forward. Bring your questions, stories, experiences, and challenges to share, or just sit and listen. The conversations are facilitated by Indigenous educator Annie Battiste and joined by local Knowledge Keepers.

Testimonial

“I have been attending the Let’s Talk:  Reconciliation calls over the past few months and they have been extremely beneficial in starting my own reconciliation journey.  I appreciate the open space that is created to come, ask questions, and learn.  The informality of these calls allows for the group to ask questions that they are curious about, which often are common among the group members.  I believe that you simply don’t know what you don’t know, and this group has enabled me to merely scratch the surface of my understanding of Indigenous history, culture, and the path forward to reconciliation. I look forward to attending Let’s Talk:  Reconciliation in the future and will certainly be bringing colleagues with me.”

Sept 30 Orange Shirt Day and

The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Reconciliation Saskatoon is encouraging everyone to take steps to recognize the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Sept 30, and use this moment to deepen your commitment to fostering change. With the help of many community voices, we created a resource page to help you:
  • prepare for Sept 30 by listening and learning;
  • get ideas for how you can honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation;
  • use the Personal Commitment for Truth and Reconciliation to reflect on your journey and choose actions that will foster change in your life, work and community; and
  • follow the Pathways for Moving Forward that will give you ideas for your next step to start or deepen the impact of your own engagement with Truth and Reconciliation.

On June 21 we honoured National Indigenous Peoples’ Day by inviting people to Walk for Reconciliation and launching a video series and map project. Take the time this summer to listen to Residential School Survivors share their stories, including the history of the Walk for Reconciliation. Visit sites around Saskatoon that are significant for truth and reconciliation. Watch our National Indigenous Peoples’ Day broadcast by following the links below:

    Hear stories about the origin of the Walk for Reconciliation, listen to communities walking for reconciliation, watch cultural performances, and more! Special thanks to the SK Intercultural Association for their role in organizing the online event.

  • KNOW YOUR ROOTS MAP PROJECT

    Follow this link to Know Your Roots, an online and pdf map of reconciliation projects around Saskatoon. This project was initiated by the Rock Your Roots Organizing Committee and is a collaboration between Reconciliation Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Public Library. This map will evolve and grow over the following year as we continue to work with the Saskatoon Survivors Circle and community to add locations and establish more partnerships to share the learning and awareness that these places can foster.

  • STORIES FROM RESIDENTIAL SCHOOL SURVIVORS

    Our Be A ConnectR YouTube channel features Residential School Survivors telling us about why the Walk for Reconciliation is important to them, as well as sharing stories. Listen, learn, show up and share these important truths.
