An ACMHE member-submitted event: This seminar continues discussions started in the Performance and Mindfulness Symposium held at the University of Huddersfield (UK) in June 2016, and in the seminar on Performing Arts and Contemplative Practices held in Rio de Janeiro, UNIRIO, in November of the same year.
In this webinar, Gary Joseph will lead ceremony from the Blackfoot and northern Cree traditions. Gary Joseph and Trudy Sable will discuss community, ceremony, and the classroom, including an Indigenous ceremonial context for connecting individual narratives to natural elements and stages of our lives.
This workshop invites participants to reclaim their ancestor's stories and repair generational trauma. We will be following the stories and values passed down from generation to generation, acknowledging the power structures we uphold as educators and leaders, and co-creating ways to disrupt the belief that the colonizer's retelling of our history is the only valid one.
