A free, open-access virtual program creates a space for individuals to gain knowledge of the different Nations in this province and develop a broader understanding of the different cultural practices and the plant kin relied upon in different regions of the province.
Each week the Nations of a different region will be the focus. Our research might lead us into looking at the plants, particular weaving styles, language and current skill holders active in their community. This is a participatory group, not a lecture. Participants are asked to do their own research on different regions for each session and bring questions, observations and readings back to the group to share. Participants are welcome to join as many of these sessions as they can. Pre-registration is required, registration closes 24 hours before each date.
