3rd World Canada
My family and I lived on Black Lake Dene First Nation in Saskatchewan for five years. This opportunity rocked our world. As teachers we grew leaps and bounds professionally. As a family, we became part of the Black Lake family. As settler descendant Canadians we learned what it means to walk in two worlds.
Over ten years later, my Black Lake relationships continue to inform my identity and calling, especially to social justice, reconciliation, and treaty implementation. These twenty-five Canadians who accept the 3rd World Canada invitation need to prepare for a life-changing experience.
Congratulations to the youth of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug. When young people have a dream, anything is possible.
