PFN Annual General Meeting – Relationality and Reciprocity within Traditional Ecological Knowledge
March 10 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
The meeting will consist of an update on PFN business, the election of the next PFN board and a presentation by two guest speakers.
Join Maggie Cummings and Kelly King from the TRACKS Youth Program for a
presentation on how Indigenous understandings of reciprocity informs
regenerative ways of being in relationship to place and creation. They’ll
discuss how TRACKS embodies these understandings and works with youth to
encourage their connections with their responsibilities to the land.
