Mapping the Ground We Stand On
As part of its commitment to support the findings of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, 
The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund has developed a program called, Mapping 
the Ground We Stand On.

This interactive workshop, known as the Mapping Exercise, invites participants to explore the Indigenous presence on the map of Canada, the history of Settler arrival, and their relationship to one another. It also offers an opportunity for learning and reflection on the concept of Terra Nullius -- or “empty land” -- and the Doctrine of Discovery as 
foundational to colonialism (of which the residential schools were one aspect).

Participants will walk on the map, reflect on their own presence on it, and discuss how they might respond to what they have learned. As time allows, participants will also learn about PWRDF's 20-year  history working in Indigenous communities in Canada.
