In September, we started a new season for the Book Club hosted by Reconciliation Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Public Library. This is a fantastic way to continue to listen and learn, and connect with others on a journey of Truth and Reconciliation. The Book Club will meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month, now over the lunch hour so you can get your coworkers involved and hop on a zoom from the office. Here are the upcoming titles, and the links to the zoom meeting will be available here, closer to the meeting! You can also find the links on the Facebook event page.
We invite everyone to join us on Thursday at Nov 24 at Le Relais (308 4th Avenue North). We’ll start with a Pipe Ceremony at 8:30am. Following the ceremony, we’ll host a meeting at 10:30am to share teachings, give our members time to meet each other and hear what’s coming up at Reconciliation Saskatoon. Coffee, tea, muffins and fruit will be served.
Following are protocols for this Pipe Ceremony, which will be hosted by Pipe Carrier Lyndon Linklater. We welcome new people to the circle, so don’t be afraid to come if you’ve never experienced a Pipe Ceremony before.
All are welcome to this event, presented by OUTSaskatoon. See their events calendar for details as they become available. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Healing Circle takes place on the third Wednesday of every month. This circle is led by an Indigenous Knowledge Keeper(s) and members of the circle, and we follow the protocols of the Talking Circle and begin each gathering with a smudge. The path of Truth and Reconciliation is difficult! This is a circle where you can find support and community. We build relationships and share our stories with each other. All people are welcome. We meet in the Cultural Room at the Saskatoon Police Service (76 25th Street East) and visitor parking is available next to the building. Please email email@example.com to be added to the email list for Healing Circle participants.
Hear stories about the origin of the Walk for Reconciliation, listen to communities walking for reconciliation, watch cultural performances, and more! Special thanks to the SK Intercultural Association for their role in organizing the online event.
