This Indigenous-led project focuses on developing a community process for promoting understanding of the land around us and in our communities. We work together to build capacity for Indigenous communities to learn and practice land-based teachings.

All community members, including non-Indigenous neighbours, are welcome to join in. Together we explore knowledge to integrate actionable steps that can make social ecosystems and infrastructure work for urban Indigenous families and community members.
