Language and Place: Pushing Beyond Territorial Acknowledgments

Meagan and Senaqwila will share with the group the Squamish map of place names so we can begin to understand how to deepen our sense of place and territorial acknowledgement- what village site do you live near? What are the true place names for the spots you frequent? Aimed at lower mainland participants, this session is an opportunity to unpack the complexity of geography, borders and regions.
