This June 21 at 12pm (noon) EDT, Indigenous Initiatives at Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU), the Centre for Indigegogy, the Centre for Student Equity, Diversity and Inclusion at WLU, and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) invite you to come (virtually) sit by the fire with Minogiizhigokwe / Kathy Absolon, Anishinaabe kwe storyteller and knowledge carrier. Through a fire and feast offering, Dr. Absolon will lead us in connecting to Indigenous teachings. Let's come together in spirit, heart, mind and body.
In addition to celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day annually on June 21, this year the date also follows both the Summer Solstice and a solar eclipse, marking a time of transition – for the changing of the seasons and also for creation. As such, it is a time for prayer and spiritual connectedness.
Due to physical distancing precautions, this event will take place virtually via the Zoom Video Conferencing platform. Please register via the Eventbrite page, and the Zoom link for the presentation will be shared with you by email prior to the start of the event. If you register for this event using an Eventbrite account, you will also be able to access the new dedicated Online Event page (by clicking "View online content" in your confirmation). This page will serve as a hub where you can access the Zoom link at the event time, as well as additional materials and links to additional resources.
