Recollections and Reflections to the Sharing Circle: Water

Recollections and Reflections to the Sharing Circle: Water with Aaron Nelson-Moody/Splash (Tawx’sin Yexwulla), Meagan Innes and Jamie Thomas held in the Aboriginal Gathering Place, March 3, 2022. 

It was an incredible sharing circle with three amazing cultural keepers. I listened to each share their knowledge of the site where Emily Carr University’s building sits before it was filled in, when the tide flowed.

I know many of our AGP talks and circles are not recorded for various reasons. I also believe in witnessing and oral knowledge sharing practices. This is the reason I approached Laura Kozak and Pat Vera to write their recollections and reflections of this sharing circle. It always amazes me to see diversity of the way in which knowledge is witnessed. Please enjoy the writings.
