Our next Dialogue, “A Conversation Across Ways of Knowing and Relating to Land,” aims to continue the conversation across ways of knowing – this time in a dialogue between and amongst Indigenous knowledge keepers and others who work within institutions organized by Western scientific knowledge systems, including the courts, government, and academia.
This dialogue will be hosted on Thursday, March 4 at 9:00 am Pacific / 11:00 am Central / 1:00 pm Atlantic (for approximately two hours).
Our next Dialogue, ‘A Conversation Across Ways of Knowing & Relating to Land’ will bring together Anishinaabe Elder Dr. Dave Courchene; Dakota Grandmother Katherine Whitecloud; the Honourable Harry Slade, Member of the Specific Claims Tribunal; the Honourable Carolyn Bennett, Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations Canada; and Dr. Fikret Berkes in conversation with Moderator Dr. Nancy Turner on relationships to land and with each other across ways of knowing and ways of being as Peoples living on this land.
After an initial discussion, Reconciling Ways of Knowing (RWoK) Conveners, Miles Richardson, OC; and Dr. David Suzuki will share their thoughts and connect the discussion to the ongoing conversation RWoK has been facilitating across the past several dialogues since we launched our online forum series. Moderator Dr. Nancy Turner will then turn to audience-participants for their thoughts and questions for the speakers.
