What does land-based reconciliation look like in our region, and how do we get there, together?
Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative invites you to join an online workshop series to learn and discuss how Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and organizations can work together to create and sustain prosperous communities and healthy landscapes in the British Columbia’s Kootenay-Columbia.
Attend the three-part series
This workshop series is designed as a package, building from one session to the next, so we encourage you to register for all three. Each workshop is one hour including presentations and dialogue.
Participants are asked to register in advance. Space is limited, so please register early to secure your spot. If you cannot make it to one of the sessions, a recording can be made available.

“Reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians, from an Aboriginal perspective, also requires reconciliation with the natural world. If human beings resolve problems between themselves but continue to destroy the natural world, then reconciliation remains incomplete. This is a perspective that we as Commissioners have repeatedly heard: that reconciliation will never occur unless we are also reconciled with the earth.”— Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada
