In this session, participants will consider the relationship between personal narratives and Land. Our personal and communal identities are shaped by the places where we are, as well as those that we have been displaced from.
In Canada, communities have begun to formally name the First Nations communities that were stewards of the Land before the arrival of Europeans, and have begun to recognize that we have not been telling the stories of our Camp from the beginning.
Through interactive reflection and creative mapping activities we will pose generative questions to help camps begin to learn about importance of bringing Indigenous narratives about the Land back into our camp communities in a way that invites the authentic restoration of relationships with Indigenous Nations who have an enduring presence on these Lands.
