I Don’t Want to Say the Wrong Thing! Shedding Light on Language
June 23, 2016 12:00-1:00pm (Eastern Time)

As our society increases its collective knowledge of our shared history with Indigenous peoples, language, identity, and nationhood are shared more frequently in daily media. The tremendous efforts of Idle No More, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and the federal government’s recent decision to endorse the UN Declaration on Rights of Indigenous Peoples are at the forefront of our national discourse.

While these national conversations are happening, have you found yourself tongue-tied in day-to-day conversations about Aboriginal peoples and current headline issues, supporting Indigenous beneficiaries or causes, and working in the First Nation, Metis and Inuit funding economy? Are you afraid of offending someone or saying the wrong thing? Did you notice we used five different terms in the questions? Do you ask yourself what does it all mean?

If you are working in the philanthropic or charitable sectors and are asking yourself these questions then this webinar is for you.

Victoria Grant – Chair, Community Foundations of Canada
Udloriak Hanson – Chief Operating Officer, Nunavut Tunngavik Inc.
