June is National Indigenous Peoples History Month.

 
Each week of June you’ll find an idea to focus your prayers and actions on as an entry point into a celebration of Indigenous Culture and a step toward reconciliation.
 
 
WEEK 4: CONTINUED LEARNING
While National Indigenous People’s History Month is drawing to a close we want to continue to keep our learning front of mind. As you move forward, please consider digging deeper into Indigenous history and culture. You might want to look into some of the options below to get you started.
WEEK 3: ROCK YOUR ROOTS
**Unfortunately the Rock Your Roots Walk for Reconciliation has been cancelled
due to weather concerns. Please be praying for the Elders who will be honoured today
and consider making a plan to do your own walk or reflection.**
WEEK 2: ART & STORY IN THE CITY
 
This week, we’re asking folks to look around the city with fresh eyes at things we’re likely quite used to seeing. Reconciliation Saskatoon has put together a wonderful guide to help explain the significance of many Indigenous focused art pieces we’re used to seeing on a regular basis without necessarily knowing what we’re looking at. It’s a great tool to help us understand more broadly the rich lives of our neighbours and our commitment to honouring Treaty relationships.

Over the month of June we encourage you to check out as many of these sites as you can in person, or if mobility is an issue for you, try using Google Street View!
 
Download the guide here:
 
Find more excellent resources at BeAConnectR.org or by following Reconciliation Saskatoon on Instagram or Facebook.
 
There’s also a fantastic app called Whose Land that allows users to learn more specifics about the Treaty that pertains to the land they live on. Check it out wherever you download your apps!
WEEK 1: LANGUAGE RECLAMATION
 
There’s a major effort in Saskatchewan to revive Indigenous Languages after a long history of colonizing practices tried to eradicate them. As we think about Pentecost this week, we invite you to consider the gift of relating to your Creator in your own unique language and syntax and how we might move our appreciation beyond our own experience to hope that gift for others.
 
Here are a few ideas to try:
