Honoring Indigenous Restorative Practices

Honoring Indigenous Restorative Practices

Gathering Space, Gzowski College, Trent University
November 26 and 27, 2018 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm

The two day forum includes experiential learning, presentations, and explores decolonizing and greater integrity in our restorative (justice) practices in Nogojiwanong-Peterborough. We will focus on Indigenous, particularly Anishinaabe-Ojibway, legal traditions, conflict resolution practices, and community justice philosophies. We will learn together the ways in which settler restorative justice practices have taken from Indigenous ways of knowing, and build a new community of practice informed by teaching from Anishinaabe Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Indigenous Services Staff, and Indigenous academics. These include Elder Jeannette Corbiere Lavell, Dr. Dawn Lavell-Harvard, Dr. Valerie Waboose, Dr. Patricia McGuire and more.

Please register online to claim your two agency spots for this forum; tickets are $45 per person, including lunch. For more information or for partner agencies who would like more than two tickets, please contact Lisa Clarke at lclarke@kawarthasac.ca or Marion Little at mediation@jhsptbo.com.
