Invitation to Education Guide Launch - February 20, 2018

Please join representatives from, the National Inquiry – Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, Alberta Students, Educators, Officials from all levels of Government, members of the public and Safe and Caring Schools & Communities for the launch of "Their Voices Will Guide Us” Education Guide at 10:45 on February 20th, 2018, at Edmonton City Hall. “Their Voices Will Guide Us” is simultaneously being launched in every province and territory in Canada. The National Launch is taking place at the Nunavut hearings in Rankin Inlet with Commissioners Robinson and Audette. Safe and Caring supports the work of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. This valuable resource provides educators at all levels with an opportunity to introduce the value of Indigenous women’s and girls’ lives into the classroom and is a response to the Calls to Action from the TRC. We have a collective responsibility to educate Canadians about the history of Indigenous Peoples in Canada and the systemic causes of violence against Indigenous women and girls. “Their Voices Will Guide Us” provides educators with tools and resources to create safe, respectful, and ethical learning environments to learn the difficult truths of our history and to empower students to change the current perceptions of Indigenous people in Canada, especially Indigenous women and girls. In addition to providing copies of The Education Guide, the program for the launch will include highlights of work that some youth in Alberta schools have done from the Education Guide. For more information please visit the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls website at http://www.mmiwg-ffada.ca, visit safeandcaring.ca or feel free to contact our office at 780-822-1500 or Leslie Ronaldson at 780-293-9833.

Talking Stick Festival 2018

As a registered non-profit Society, Full Circles Talking Stick Festival, now in its 17th year, began as a way to showcase and celebrate Indigenous art and performance to a wider audience. From its humble beginnings, this unique and exciting event has grown into a full 2-week Festival held annually in February at locations across Vancouver. Now attracting over 18,000 attendees each year and still growing, we are noted as being the premier, multi-disciplinary Indigenous arts festival in North America. With a desire to appeal to Indigenous and non-Indigenous attendees alike, our programming focuses on the diversity of Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, Music, Pow Wow and Film in both traditional and contemporary formats. This year's #TSF2018 theme is Schayilhen (S-ch-eye-yay-lh-un), which translates literally to "Salmon going up". Figuratively, it means salmon going up the stream to spawn and to sacrifice them for us to eat. We welcome you to join our circle and look forward to having you come along on our cultural journey for 2018. Stay up to date and be apart of our circle on social media.
