The Sense of Place Symposium Report is a summary of the presentations delivered by FPCC recipients of the 2019-2020 Sense of Place: Reconnecting the Land through Indigenous Cultural Heritage grant. The symposium was delayed as a result of COVID-19 and was held virtually from November 24-26, 2021.
At the symposium, representatives from 13 of the 14 project teams came together virtually to speak about their processes. This report provides a summary of each group’s presentation to give a broad picture of the diverse accomplishments of these communities in addressing how Indigenous knowledge systems can be applied to planning for community resiliency and for the well-being of people and the land into the future.
Symposium facilitation and preparation of the report by Alderderhill Planning Inc.
The Sense of Place grant was funded by Indigenous Services Canada.
