What does land-based reconciliation look like in our region, and how do we get there, together?
Y2Y is pleased to be offering additional workshops to explore and celebrate new conservation agreements between First Nations and colonial governments, and hear from more Indigenous experts on the topic of land-based reconciliation.
This workshop series is designed as a package, building from one session to the next. More information is available in the Entering Ethical Space backgrounder.
Additional workshops will be held in April or May, please stay tuned.
Session 5: March 17
Stay tuned for details on this session, coming soon.
Join us Wednesday, Mar. 17 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. PST.
Adding to the Ethical Space series
In late 2020 Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative hosted 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 British Columbia’s Kootenay-Columbia region.
We heard stories, learned about Indigenous authority, and discussed foundational principles and commitments to reconciliation and what it means to operate in ethical space.
“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
