Muslim-Indigenous Solidarity

AMPAC recognizes that the scope of our work is on the territory of Treaties 4, 6, 8 and 10 – the traditional land of Indigenous peoples whose long histories, languages and cultures continue to enliven our shared communities. AMPAC is committed to learning the Truth before consciously implementing the tenets of Reconciliation to the best of our abilities.

AMPAC TRC Reading Group (2017)

AMPAC hosted a monthly TRC Reading group throughout 2017. Participants read through all 6 volumes of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Reports and learned about the cultures and histories of Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island.

Honouring the Sacred: Indigenous History Lecture

In February 2017, AMPAC hosted a public lecture with Dr. Dwayne Donald and Elder Bob Cardinal about the true meaning of Treaty from an Indigenous perspective and what Settler-Canadians can do to honour the spirit in which they were originally signed. We all have a responsibility to respect and care for one another and these gatherings are the first step forward together.
