Living Together: Yellowknife
Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre
Wednesday, 14 September 2016 from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM (MDT)
This was a day-long exploration with local residents, community leaders, researchers and young people of the values, attitudes and beliefs — as well as the ongoing struggles and divides — that shape Yellowknife — and Canada.
Identity and belonging
- Many Canadians would agree that unity, acceptance, and inclusiveness are important values. From your perspective, what evidence do you see of Yellowknife residents living these values? Where are we coming up short?
- How can Canada – and Yellowknife– create communities that are more inclusive and accepting of diversity?
- What actions can you take to implement reconciliation with Indigenous peoples into your personal life, workplace and community?
We respectfully acknowledge that this event took place on the traditional territories of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation and North Slave Metis Alliance.
Planning for the future
- What opportunities do you see for building a more inclusive community?
- What are some of the ways in which we could be more inclusive of our diverse community over the next 10 years?
- What are the needs today, and what needs to happen in the next 10 years in Yellowknife?
