Connecting with Indigenous Neighbours Meeting

Purpose:
We are Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples who gather and reside on Treaty 6 land and care deeply about the land, Treaty relationships and our community. We will build trust and reconcile with one another through relationship, ceremony, the arts and celebration.

Open to all community members that have a passion about building Indigenous connections

Meetings are the third Tuesday of the month from 4:30-6:00pm. Meetings are hybrid and can be attended virtually or in person at the Spruce Grove Public Library.

To be added to the mailing list and receive Zoom links regarding meetings and future projects, please email the group's secretary at dbutz@stonyplain.com.


Land-based Learning: Tipi Teachings

Tipi Teachings is a partnership with our friends from Treaties 6, 7, and 8 who have been invited by CHANGE Health to share their story and create space for you to share your story. You are being invited to create authentic social connections, explore new stories and experience the land. Each date offers a new experience where you might bring your own questions and form new friendships or perhaps, discover that we are all truly related in some way. The goal of this is to protect our mental, emotional and physical health by deepening community and honouring the land.
