The field of psychology is wide ranging and touches on innumerable subjects in the public discourse.

The Importance of Land Acknowledgements

The Importance of Land Acknowledgements
“Things are different now. The fish taste different. The animals are migrating differently.”

A land acknowledgement is not only about physical land – like the soil, and the ground under our feet. It’s so much more than that. Kohkom Beverly Keeshig-Soonias, the Chair of the Indigenous Peoples’ Psychology Section of the CPA, joins Mind Full to talk about the centuries of Indigenous tradition that are imbued in land acknowledgements, and how we can approach them in the right way in the spirit of reconciliation.
