WHOLE PERSPECTIVES:

“Reconciliation in Canada and in B.C.”

Nipawi Kakinoosit is a Nehiyaw Okicitaw Okimawsis (a Cree Warrior lieutenant) from the Young Wolves Warrior Society of the Cree Nation. He is a member of House of Kakinoosit of the Wolf Clan of the Sucker Creek Band of the Woodland Cree Tribe of the Cree Nation located on the SouthWestern shores of the Lesser Slave Lake in Northern Alberta. He is an adopted member of the Musqueam Indian Band, (Coast Salish), and the Elsipogtog First Nation, (Mi’kmaq).

Nipawi asks, from a first-hand perspective: “Canada has embarked on a reconciliation process with First Nations right across the country. How is this going so far? Are we leaving the colonization period behind or aren’t we? Movements like Idle No More! resistance to pipelines and many more issues suggest there is much more to be done.”

Whole Perspectives is an on-going series on Topics of our Times.
Often controversial, these are issues that matter to our community and we try our darndest to have representation from all perspectives, in a civil discussion format.
Admission is by donation.
If you have an idea for a Whole Perspectives night, please get in touch!

2019 Convergence Writers’ Weekend, WRITING TOWARD FORGIVENESS @ Silverton Gallery
Jun 7 5:00 pm
Share Button

The Convergence Series brings together widely varied streams of intellectual and spiritual knowledge within the context of open-heartedness. As converging creeks create a mighty river, this integration of different ways of knowing yields something that is stronger, deeper, and more complex than any single watercourse. Convergence wisdom is creative, rooted in relationship, and designed to change individuals, inspire communities, and help heal the world.

This year’s theme is “Writing Toward Forgiveness.” Friday evening will open with a 7 p.m. performance entitled “Big Water Coming,” presented by Marya Folinsbee & the Valley Gems Theatre Troupe. Following this will be the public lecture by acclaimed author Joy Kogawa on the weekend theme.  Saturday will feature writing workshops with instructors Leesa Dean and Keith Liggett during the day and an evening integration session with Joy, Leesa and Keith.  While the Friday evening event is open to the public, all other events are for registered participants only.
