We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is Treaty 4 territory and the traditional territory of the Anihšinābēk, Nêhiyawak, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakota peoples, and the original home of the Métis/Michif Nation. We recognize that both Indigenous and Métis people are the spiritual and cultural keepers of their traditional lands and still to this day, continue to practice their values, languages, beliefs and knowledge.
Spring Free From Racism Family Day
Around March 21, The International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, we see more education in the school system and the media but this education needs to be happening all year round. We need to move from images of historical racism that spring to mind – such as slavery in the United States, Apartheid in South Africa or the Holocaust in Europe – to current images of racism – what is happening on the streets of Regina with racial gang related crime, events or simply what is happening in our education, justice, media, immigration and employment systems. This includes all forms of hate activity, government policies or even equal rights in political activity.
