Join us on Thursday, August 23 from 10am to 2pm for an experiential workshop grounded in Squamish ways of knowing. It features a giant board game designed by Michelle Nahanee called Sínulhkay and Ladders.

Sínulhkay and Ladders is a life-size board game that promotes the Squamish practice of Chen chen stway (holding each other up) while working through neocolonial scenarios of oppression. Its purpose is to provide a framework for developing decolonizing practices.

Decolonizing practices are actions we can take, words we can say and ideas can we unlearn/learn to transform colonial impacts. The focus of the game is bettering Indigenous to non-Indigenous relations in professional settings, making sure we are holding each up — not sliding down the double-headed serpent, called Sínulhkay in the Squamish language.

The game board is a rhetorical tool to emphasize neocolonialism as structures we can name and reframe. Each journey is its own, let’s make brave space for renewed understandings and decolonizing practices.

(This is a community-style workshop meaning we have set the number of participants at 25 so smaller organizations can join together in the work. Normally, we deliver in-house sessions for 25 participants.)

(Note: We are currently securing the location and caterer, we'll update the page as soon as we confirm. Thanks for your interest!)
