Walk with Mother Earth

Our initiative called Walk with Mother Earth highlights Native Americans as the first stewards of the land and seek to include their wisdom and knowledge in the process of restoring balance to Our Mother Earth. PAZA will create partnerships with other nonprofit organizations who are dedicated to healing the earth, protecting the environment, replenishing the forests and creating sustainable living in all forms.  We actively co-partner in events and workshops that celebrate the environment, conservation and sustainable living with the added perspective of the First Nations, so we can begin to understand how to walk in harmony with Nature and all living things.

Building Bridges

PAZA is dedicated to building a bridge between indigenous and non-indigenous cultures through cultural exchange in Arts and Education, and through acts of healing and reconciliation

Loss of Turtle Island

Reconciliation Circle

Recommended for participants

12 and older

Based on the Kairos CANADA Program, the Blanket Exercise is an 90 minute interactive workshop that presents an opportunity for participants to experience the "Loss of Turtle Island" through the eyes of our indigenous relatives as European settlers took over their land.  It is a powerful, physical exercise that promotes discussion between Natives and Non-Natives as a mean of truth, healing and reconcilation.

Program Fee: $25 per person
