We know that the land on which we gather is land that belongs to first nations and Indigenous people who didn’t choose to give up their land. But how often is there an opportunity to explore the full richness of the nations and people to whom the land we call “Canada” belongs? The Primate’s World Development and Relief Fund in Canada has put together “Mapping The Ground We Stand On,” an exercise that invites us to walk a map of the land on which we live. An Indigenous witness will join us to help us reflect on our own histories and presence on Turtle Island.

In his introduction to the Mapping exercise, National Indigenous Anglican Archbishop Mark MacDonald says, “It is another layer, another lens, of the story of colonialism. It allows some personal application and consideration. In this exercise you will uncover the truth and the falseness of many of the maps that are part of our individual and collective lives.”

The Cathedral’s TRCircle invites anyone interested in building right relations with Canada’s indigenous people to take part in the Mapping The Ground We Stand On exercise on Saturday, November 13 at Christ Church Cathedral, 1.00-4.00 pm. This exercise will take place in person, cost $10.00.

Due to Covid safety protocols, there are 40 spots available for this exercise. Masks must be worn, and the facilitators ask that participants be fully vaccinated. Register via Eventbrite.
