Atamiskākēwak National Gathering 2018
“Atamiskākēwak 2018 is the bringing together of all people in a week of experiences, education, understanding and fun, bridging the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples! This will be a week that has something for everyone; no matter the age, demographic or knowledge level, all coming together and “Shaking Hands in Greeting with each Other”.
Converging Pathways and Indigenous Pathways are partnering on a shared initiative with the City of Moose Jaw to host a National Gathering. The Atamiskākēwak Gathering will bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples together throughout Saskatchewan and abroad to educate how we all can take intentional action to the Truth and Reconciliation’s 94 Calls to Action in this country. Our nation has an ever- increasing population of Indigenous people and we need to move forward together, understanding and bridging the gap that exists between the two cultures. It is an opportunity to experience the Indigenous culture and engage in conversations on a pathway forward that will provide understanding and long term systemic change by building trusting relationships going forward. It will be a week of education, cultural understanding and training, addressing the present complexities that exist in this country with regards to Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. It will be a week of quickening hearts to Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commissions ’94 Calls to Action’ and building relationships for people of all ages.
