This workshop, led by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in Toronto, was born out of the Youth Reconciliation Initiative (YRI). The YRI was designed to train and empower youth from Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities and to facilitate collaborative efforts to continue informing and mobilizing Canada’s young people. We aim to continue the process of learning about Indigenous histories and to stress the importance of positioning ourselves on the land that we work and live on, and call home. This workshop will be an interactive dialogue about our relationship to the land and its histories, and striving towards building cultural solidarity. Join us in exploring  within ourselves and with each other what decolonization and reconciliation can look like.
