The day will begin with a workshop where you will: • learn about Canada and Alberta’s history of colonialism; • engage in some myth-busting; • explore ways to build solidarity with Indigenous workers; and • find ways to be an ally to support reconciliation in the workplace and in our union. In the afternoon, you will deepen your understanding of First Peoples and their traditions by: • opening the circle to the stories and teachings of an Elder; • learning about the land we are gathering on; • receiving the teachings of the medicine bag; and • crafting medicine bags for the Aboriginal Council. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for Indigenous members in CUPE.
