AB EB Cultural Appropriation and looking for authentic Indigenous resources.

In this highly interactive workshop, you will participate in looking deeper into the definitions, historical context and cultural information that surround cultural appropriation. We will examine the complexities of this work as well as look for opportunities for digging deeper in understanding of the harms of this work on Indigenous people and communities. This thought-provoking workshop will help you gain the tools needed to find cultural appropriate materials, as well as knowing how to identify these materials for your classroom.

Quoted from Jesse Wente's new book Unreconciled. Page 168

"Cultural appropriation is Canada's tactic, a colonizer's tool. Indigenous people didn't invent it; we just suffer its consequences- so why should we have to endlessly explain it?"
