The Elders Knowledge Circle preserves, protected, revitalizes, and shares wisdom from Indigenous Elders. Initiated and led by a group of Elders, the Knowledge Circle plays a key role in the preservation of Indigenous culture, enhancing the capacity of our community’s Elders, and strengthening relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous groups.
The overarching goals of the Elders Knowledge Circle are:
Create a sustainable model to protect, revitalize, and share oral knowledge and practice
Bridge the gap in cultural understanding between Indigenous (oral) and Western (written) ways
Serve as a centralized resource of knowledge and wisdom for Indigenous and Non-Indigenous groups
In this era of reconciliation, municipalities, academic institutions, and private corporations can work with the Knowledge Circle in creating Indigenous policies and frameworks, which will positively impact their relationships with the Indigenous community.
