Deeper Dive Session 3: Whose Land? Exploring Indigenous History
The Deeper Dive recommendations come from a diverse array of facilitators, participants, and advisors. They’ve been curated by a curriculum review committee that will also periodically revise/update the lists. The lists are by no means comprehensive.
The materials are offered for the sake of individual use, and circles may also decide to create structured use. For example, participants could sign up to review one or more of the supplementary materials for a particular session, and then offer insights during that particular session’s circle meeting. Or, circles that have completed the curriculum may find they wish to reconvene and create their own curriculum from these suggested resources.
