Relations First with Ta7talíya Nahanee

Join Ta7talíya Michelle Nahanee and North Shore Libraries for a virtual introduction to decolonizing your relations to this land, your work and your community, with traditional welcome from Chief Janice George. 
September 30 is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to recognize the painful history of residential schools, and to honour survivors, their families, and communities. Whether you are new to these conversations and practices, or you’d like to reconnect to, and re-inspire, your unlearning journey, join us for an overview of decolonization and an evening of self-reflection. 
While the teachings and critical Indigenous theory shared by Ta7talíya Michelle Nahanee at this talk are grounded in Squamish worldview, they are applicable across Indigenous Territories.
