Small Group Meetings with Indigenous Community Members and Organizations

There will be 10 small group meetings with local Indigenous community members and organizations. These sessions will be facilitated by First Peoples Group and will be focused on three key areas:

  1. a focused and facilitated discussion on the relocation of the statue to Cataraqui Cemetery; 
  2. a focused and facilitated discussion on interpretive ideas for the prior location of the statue in City Park; and 
  3. a focused and facilitated discussion on community-city protocol development and how best to form an advisory council or committee to work with the City on initiatives of shared interest moving forward.

If you are an Indigenous community member and are interested in joining a small group meeting please email Melissa at First Peoples Group who can help with meeting dates, times and registration. Email melissaatfirstpeoplesgroup.com
