Home All Programs Walking with Indigenous Communities Resources
This 4 page document has been created by the Alberta Recreation & Parks Association (ARPA) with the intention of highlighting the role that reconciliation plays in recreation and parks settings, and will serve not only our internal staff members, but also our entire community of recreation and parks professionals, stakeholders, partners and communities as a resource to use and share.
The following sections are included in this toolkit: Land Acknowledgement, Reconciliation, Allyship, Inclusive Recreation, Inclusive Parks, A Success Story at ARPA, Cultural Use of Land & Land Sovereignty, Indigenous Traditional Food Systems, Residential Schools, ARPA’s Indigenous Oral Knowledge Hub, and Foundational Resources.
Please visit our Indigenous Oral Knowledge Hub where we have gathered all of our oral resources, alongside some external guest additions, to share with you. Our huge thanks go to the Elders and to our partners who have shared the gift of these incredible stories and teachings.
The Alberta Recreation & Parks Association would like to acknowledge the First Nations, the Métis, and all of the people across Alberta who share a history and a deep connection with this land. We dedicate ourselves to moving forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in the spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.
