Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge we are on the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation of the Anishinaabe peoples. During our region’s rich indigenous history, these lands have been home to the Chonnonton peoples, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe and the Métis. We express gratitude for the sharing of these lands. We also acknowledge the tragic history between first peoples and newcomers. We strive to be accountable by acknowledging this history and cultivating respect in our relationships with indigenous peoples and the land.

( 10:30am - 11:30am )
    Opening to Our True History: Lessons of John A MacDonald
  • Martha Savage & Paul Smith
  • Zoom On Line
  • Revisiting Canada’s “Creation Myth”

    Sadly, Canada’s creation was founded on the disposition, repression, and erasure of Indigenous people. But our “creation myth” is about John A. MacDonald forging a federation of provinces, of “two founding peoples” and uniting the country with a railway from sea-to-sea to benefit us all. Indigenous people and historians have exposed the grim reality behind that destructive myth. What about the epochs of Indigenous history on Turtle Island or even the efforts of historic Indigenous leaders to found a better Canada, like Louis Riel, Big Bear (Mistahi-maskwa) and Poundmaker (Pîhtokahanapiwiyin)? Can we create an honest origin story for our country that will help heal our divisions and inequities? Come and hear perspectives on the truth of our history and hope for a new vision.

    Imbolc & Membership
  • Green Team
  • Zoom On Line
  • Imbolc reminds us to reflect on new beginnings and the coming spring.  We are reminded that the Wheel of the Year is a cycle, an ever-revolving process.  Join us as we explore the Imbolc's wisdom and UCG membership as a process. Though there are organizational needs to define "membership" specifically, the process of membership is often a gradual progression from lesser to greater commitment, lesser to greater relationship, which neither begins nor ends at the point of formal joining, and will continue to shift, change and transform over the year. 

    Membership holds the energy of belonging, more involved connection and the promise to grow together through joys, challenges and gifts that community life offers.  Today we formally welcome and celebrate new UCG members, while also acknowledging those who have held the flame for our community over the year, and those who have yet to arrive. May we keep the door open.

    Green Team:  Melissa Horvath-Lucid, Rebekah Jamieson , Lauren Stein, Teah Lauermeier, and Linda Reith
