The 7th Wîcihitowin Indigenous Engagement Conference invites community organizations, governments and businesses to learn about inclusive representation of Indigenous people as employees, volunteers and decision-makers. Within the context of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, if you’re working towards respectful Indigenous engagement and inclusion in a community-based setting, this conference is for you. Join us on the path to reconciliation.
OUR 2021 THEME
The Seven Sacred Teachings of love, respect, courage, honesty, wisdom, humility and truth are the inherent beliefs and values that guide Indigenous People’s ways of knowing and are shared by generations through oral traditions of storytelling and ceremony. Indigenous People know that these teachings are needed in order for communities to survive and thrive. Each embodied by a sacred animal being, these teachings abide by a moral code of respect for all creation and remind us of the importance of making decisions today that will result in lifelong relationships seven generations in the future.
Now in our seventh year, the 2021 Wîcihitowin Indigenous Engagement Conference is inviting Residential School Survivors and Knowledge Keepers to explore the Seven Sacred Teachings and share how they have guided the people through personal journeys. This year’s speakers will also provide context for how the teachings can help community members, organizations, governments, and businesses respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, while also informing actions that can be taken to ensure respectful Indigenous engagement and inclusion within communities.
Attendees can expect to learn from the demonstrated core teachings, gather key takeaways on relevant topics, and gain resources to incorporate reconciliation in both their personal and professional lives.
We invite you to join us on the path to reconciliation by supporting this life-changing conference.
