About this Event

Listening to Indigenous Voices

Saturdays, 1:00pm – 3:00pm

12 Sessions, bi-weekly: October 14, 2023 to April 6, 2024
St. Augustine’s Parish Hall, 2028 West 7th Avenue

Listening to Indigenous Voices (LTIV) is a course developed by the Jesuit Forum for Social Faith & Justice and KAIROS Canada with Indigenous elders, leaders, historians, artists and activists across Canada. 

Listening to Indigenous Voices asserts Canada does not have an "Indigenous problem," it has a colonization problem. Over the course of 12 sessions, participants will learn about the land known as Turtle Island, its diverse peoples and traditions (practices, cultures, languages), the impact of initial European contact, the spread of non-Indigenous settlements, the displacement and marginalization of Indigenous peoples from policies, laws and entitlements aimed at exclusion.  

The format of each session is a sharing circle with parish facilitator and Indigenous witness/facilitator. Participants are asked to come ready to share a brief reflection on a pre-selected question from the session chapter. Everyone in the circle has an opportunity to speak or reflect silently in turn. After rounds of reflection, sessions end with an open discussion.
