BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN INDIGENOUS, IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE COMMUNITIES
In this episode of Righting Relations Radio, we are in conversation with Alfredo Barahona from Kairos, exploring relationship-building between Indigenous, Immigrant and Refugee communities which both Kairos and Righting Relations are facilitating across Turtle Island, and the importance of knowing who you are.
RIGHTING RELATIONS DOC NIGHT MAY 9TH, TALES OF SAND AND SNOW
Join us at Righting Relations Doc Night for a screening of “Tales of Sand and Snow” by Hyacinthe Combary. In a quest to rediscover the spiritual values of his own people, an African filmmaker from the Gourmantche tribe of Burkina Faso visits an Indigenous community, the Atikamekw of northern Quebec. The resulting documentary is a dialogue between those who divine the future in the sand with those who use snow-encased sweat lodges to reconnect with the spiritual world.
