Collaboration with First Nations
In recent years, we have become more aware of the sins committed in the name of colonisation and the status quo. As we work towards Truth and Reconciliation, this immersion will provide insights into the lives, gifts and struggles of First Nations with a particular focus on those who live on Walpole Island. This will be accomplished through experiences like the blanket exercise, body mapping, drumming and sacred circles and opportunities to see the work of Walpole Island residents through tours and conversations.
Walpole Island is located near Chatham, ON (approximately, 1.5 hours from Windsor). As a result, participants in this immersion will be billeted in homes in the area for the immersion. For more information about Walpole Island and its programs click here
