Moving Land Acknowledgements from Page to Practice

Type: Programs
Topics: Cornerstone

In many communities in Canada and the United States, land acknowledgments, recognizing the original inhabitants of our locales, have become increasingly common. In this session, we will explore how the history and traditions of the Jewish people offer us perspective in better understanding our own relationship to land and place, as well as the relationships indigenous peoples have with the North American continent (also called Turtle Island). Through an interactive workshop, we will elevate land acknowledgments from formulaic statement to a physical and spatial practice that is deeply personal and empathetic.
