Dialogue 5 – Guests of Lekwungen: Urban Indigenous Experiences in Canada
May 30, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Join us in person for stories that highlight the diversity of experiences of Urban Indigenous people living in Lekwungen territory.
The Victoria Reconciliation Dialogues series returns IN PERSON with three new conversations in 2022 that enable the community to participate in reconciliation on Lekwungen territory.
Guided by members of the City Family and special guests, the conversations seek to build the community’s knowledge and understanding of reconciliation — what it is, why it is needed and why community participation in reconciliation is important.
PRE-REGISTER FOR DIALOGUE 5:
Pre-register to participate in Victoria Reconciliation Dialogue 5 – Guests of Lekwungen: Urban Indigenous Experiences in Canada on Monday, May 30 from 6 – 8:30 p.m. at the Victoria Conference Centre.
Urban Indigenous people living in Lekwungen territory are not people of the Lekwungen lands. Yet as Indigenous people in Canada, they are often displaced from their own homelands through the process of colonization, including the sixties scoop and other colonial practices. This Dialogue will share stories that highlight the experiences of Urban Indigenous people living in Lekwungen territory and the diversity of Indigenous experience. There will also be live musical performances.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
Free childminding will be available (up to 2 hours).
Complimentary refreshments will be provided.

Dialogue 6 – Rethinking Heritage in the Context of Reconciliation – Monday, July 11
Dialogue 7 – Na’tsa’maht: Going Forward Together – Monday, September 12
