This video recording https://youtu.be/WQXKvBhNf5s was made following Saskatchewan Multicultural Week 2020 by the Prairie Central District for Sport, Culture and Recreation with support from Saskatchewan Lotteries.
It features a conversation with the Executive Director of the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan, Rhonda Rosenberg, on recognizing racism, privilege and Allyship.
It also shares #PCDHometownHero Sheena Koops’ Journey on Treaty Four and becoming a Treaty Relative.
We invite you to watch, re-watch, pause, share, reflect (in any order) in your own space or in a group. Open up conversations around Racism, Privilege, Allyship and what being a Treaty Relative means to you.
Discover where you are on the “Becoming Anti-Racist” spectrum. Find the tools to help you move forward learning, and growing on your journey.
Recognize the potential in your anatomy and what YOU can do along the way.
Remember this is your journey. Make it authentic. Stop along the way. Listen, learn and grow.
We would love feedback on the recording. If you would, please leave a note in the comment section or follow the short evaluation link: https://forms.gle/fYs3cpHarcXtTEsaA
“In 1974, Saskatchewan was the first province to enact multiculturalism legislation, recognizing the right of every community to retain its identity, language and traditional arts and sciences for the mutual benefit of citizens. In 1997, the Act was revised and a section of the Act states the policy should preserve, strengthen and promote Aboriginal cultures and acknowledge their historic and current contribution to development of Saskatchewan. More information is available on The Saskatchewan Multiculturalism Act. Responsibility for the Act resides with the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport.” Click here to read more
