First Peoples Healing Conference

 Skahane:tewatironton (Mohawk)- Piiriqatigiingniq (Inuktitut) – We All Pull Together

February 11-12, 2019 at Bingemans Conference Centre

The Healing of the Seven Generations will be hosting a two-day First Peoples Healing Conference in February 11-12, 2019 at Bingemans Conference Centre.

We hope this conference will provide useful healing opportunities for First Peoples suffering from the intergenerational legacy of the residential school system and learning opportunities for the wider community on First Peoples cultures and realities in their paths towards reconciliation.

The conference itself will feature an all First Peoples lineup, with workshops, speakers, performances, panels, discussion groups, Knowledge Keepers, Seers, and Medicine People; demonstrations of First Peoples ceremonies and circles,  a local First Peoples history walk, a local First Peoples medicine and food walk, as well as healing, singing, drumming, and dancing circles. We will also feature First Peoples artisans, crafters, and other vendors, particularly those from the Region in our vendors area. Panels and discussion groups will utilize local voices, especially those with lived experience, wherever possible.

If you would like to volunteer, partner, or sponsor with the conference, please contact Rebecca Sargent.

Early Bird Tickets will go on sale July 2018! Check back here for more details!
