Indigenous Adult Literacy Curriculum and Resource Development Project Launch
May 2, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Date: Monday, May 2, 2022
Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Where: In-Person, Edmonton Inn, 11834 Kingsway Avenue, Room: Courtyard Ballroom
Join members of ECALA, Elders, Traditional Knowledge Keepers, Indigenous Educators, Indigenous adults and community members to share ideas and knowledge that will help guide and contribute to the Indigenous Literacy curriculum framework and resource development tool.
Educators and tutors can use this introductory resource development to facilitate community-based learning opportunities. We also want to identify gaps that may prevent some agencies from providing literacy programming for Indigenous adults.
The Project will be launched and closed in Ceremony. Conversation and knowledge sharing will be held in Circle. Traditional values of respect, honesty, sharing and caring in all conversations will be incorporated during the event and through the Project. In the spirit of reciprocity, those who register and attend will receive a gift card for sharing their insight, thoughts, and time.
We ask that while in Ceremony, those attending dress appropriately. It is the practice for women to wear a skirt below knee length, or you are encouraged to bring a shawl or towel to wrap around your legs. If you do not have a skirt or shawl, there will be some blankets made available. You may also want to bring a blanket to sit on during parts of the Ceremony.
Please note that COVID health guidelines and protocols will be followed to protect attendees.
