Kiiloona Wuskiiwundakw - “Our New Direction”
Launch Event for the Indigenous Leadership Pillar
Carolinian Canada is proud to invite you to Kiloona Wuskiiwundakw - “Our New Direction” - the Indigenous Leadership Pillar (ILP) launch event.
The ILP started with the foundational work of Brandon Doxtator in 2018 and under Samantha Whiteye’s vision in 2022, the Indigenous Leadership Pillar was born and became a central pillar driving Carolinian Canada’s work.
The ILP’s vision and role is unique in the conservation sector as we lead with our values rooted in accountability, reciprocity and transparency. Our goal is to build capacity for Indigenous representation in the sector, support youth in connecting back to the land and shift the narratives of how conservation has been done by creating and implementing Safe and Ethical spaces. By integrating Two-Eyed Seeing with a community-based approach, we are creating space and fulfilling our role for seven generations forward in stewardship and collaboration.
This event will introduce you to the ILP’s vision and some exciting big announcements! Attendees will get an in-depth look at our journey so far, the challenges we’ve encountered and what we’ve accomplished. In addition, we will be unveiling our new website at the launch. Join us in support of reconciliation in action.
The launch event is free to attend. We invite you to join us in ethical space for our Kiiloona Wuskiiwundakw event.
We welcome any donations directly to the Indigenous Leadership Pillar. Your funds support ILP’s new initiatives and mentorship programs. Support ILP today!
