Abbotsford school district hosts two workshops on Sto:lo history

Sessions on Jan. 5 and March 2 at Community Aboriginal Centre

Two free workshops about de-colonization and Sto:lo history are being hosted in the new year by the Abbotsford school district’s aboriginal education department.

The first session takes place Thursday, Jan. 5, and the second is on Thursday, March 2. Both sessions run from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Community Aboriginal Centre, 3277 Gladwin Rd.

Topics include consensus government, the reservation law/pass system, Indian residential schools and present-day governance.

This emotional history lesson requires active participation and offers a beginning insight into what is decolonization and relationship-based care and cultural safety.

Space is limited. Those interested in attending are asked to send an email to Peggy_Janicki@sd34.bc.ca.
