On March 7, 2017, the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy will be holding a public workshop on The Relationship Between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous People at the University of Regina campus. In the spirit of 2017: IPAC’s National Year of Dialogue, we proud to promote this workshop to all IPAC Saskatchewan members interested in learning more about the past, present, and future relationships between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada made the following Call to Action which this workshop supports:
“We call upon the federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal governments to provide education to public servants on the history of Aboriginal peoples, including the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal-Crown relations. This will require skills-based training and intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.”
