Join us in celebration as we launch Listening to Indigenous Voices with Harry Lafond as moderator, Lee Maracle (author, professor and Traditional Cultural Director for the Indigenous Theatre School at the University of Toronto), Sylvia McAdam Saysewahum (Co-founder of Idle-No More and professor) and music by Catherine Martin (director of Indigenous community engagement at Dalhousie University).
Listening to Indigenous Voices: A Dialogue Guide on Justice and Right Relationships is a112-page, 11-session guide seeks to stimulate dialogue and action in favour of justice and decolonization in this part of Turtle Island known to many as Canada. The guide includes writings from authors such as Arthur Manuel, Beverly Jacobs, John Borrows, Lee Maracle, Niigaanwewidam Sinclair, Sylvia McAdam Saysewahum, John Mohawk, and Robin Wall Kimmerer along with works from a variety of Indigenous artists, include Diane Montreuil and Christi Belcourt and Kent Monkman.
The guide seeks to both build on and go beyond the KAIROS blanket exercise and includes questions to guide sharing circles as well as curriculum ideas for use in secondary and post-secondary educational settings. Supplementary online materials will also be available, including videos, articles, spiritual reflections, and suggested readings.
Listening to Indigenous Voices begins by exploring Indigenous worldviews, goes on to examine the history of colonization, and concludes with sessions on righting relationships, decolonization, and indigenization.
The printed, full-colour guide is published by Novalis in English and French and will be available for $19.95 from the Jesuit Forum for Social Faith and Justice.
