The act of creating and speaking an Indigenous land acknowledgement is a practice that is now popping up in a variety of settings across the country. While we experience it as a moment at the beginning of a gathering, it is actually part of a bigger process for our society and for the individual. Throughout this three-part workshop series, we will address the history and purpose of land acknowledgments, examine our unique contexts, and support one another as we each craft a research-based, personalized and heartfelt land acknowledgement. We will also connect land acknowledgements to our individual relationship to land, and explore the implications on our teaching practices.
This workshop series is designed for educators, but will benefit anyone interested in deepening their relationship to place. Presented in partnership with Gedakina and Shelburne Farms, this program is offered as a 3-part series, with each session building upon the foundation of the previous session(s). There will be land-based homework to complete between sessions. We ask that you commit to participating in all three sessions when registering.
