The International Indigenous Speakers’ Bureau has an incredible range of speakers that can address topics from health/wellness, arts, history to business and sports: “IISB is about creating opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities to connect, and build bridges, by providing access to a wealth of Indigenous Speakers around the world.”
Volunteering is an opportunity to not only learn, but interact with others and build relationships—the heart of reconciliation. Find an event, call the organizer, and get out there!
