AUArts Lodgepole Center Presents the Indigenous Allyship Workshop

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

The AUArts Lodgepole Center is proud to host the Indigenous Allyship Workshop in partnership with Pe Metawe Consulting on September 30, in recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This workshop will focus on understanding the Calls to Action within the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, particularly focusing on how higher education, post-secondary, and other important public institutions can increase Indigenous representation, decolonize working relationships, increase consultation, and renew functional relationships with Indigenous peoples.

The discussion will include Indigenous relations throughout Canadian history and the ways in which the legacy of colonialism still affects the quality of life of Indigenous peoples, families, and First Nations today.

AUArts students, faculty and staff are invited to attend this event through MS Teams, and visit the Lodgepole Center in advance for an orange ribbon, sticker and copy of the Truth and Reconciliation Principals and Calls to Action.

The AUArts campus will be closed on Thursday, September 30th in recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
