DECOLONIZING ENGO-FIRST NATION PARTNERSHIPS

This virtual workshop series consists of seven 3-hour sessions delivered over the course of a two-month period on Wednesdays between March 6th and April 17th, 2024, from 1:00-4:00 PM ET. Each cohort will consist of up to 50 ENGO staff/leaders drawn from across Canada.

All participants will receive a confirmation email from TicketTailor with a link to join the meetings on Zoom. All registrants will be provided with a link to the recording and the presentation slides following each session.

By the end of each workshop series, cohort participants will gain the following:

a. Awareness of settler colonialism and the ways it potentially harnesses civil society;

b. Understanding about how Canadian law such as the Indian Act and the Income Tax Act has suppressed Indigenous governance systems;

c. Awareness that Indigenous peoples have inherent (sui generis) political and legal systems, with which ENGOs may want to form partnerships;

d. A better understanding about how to navigate partnerships with Indigenous communities that promote decolonial environmentalism;

e. A stronger sense about how to identify and explain individual and organization social locations (i.e. positionalities) as part of ethical partnership development.
