On August 27, 2022, Muskeg Lake Cree Nation hosted a group of 45 (mostly) settlers, reflecting on the theme of “Decolonizing Ourselves: Healing Haunted Histories.” The event’s title was drawn from the book by Elaine Enns and Ched Meyers, Healing Haunted Histories: A Settler Discipleship of Decolonization. The authors, plus former Chief and Catholic deacon Harry Lafond and his partner, Metis Elder Germaine Lafond, led us in reflecting on our landlines, bloodlines, and songlines in different locations around the Muskeg Lake reserve.

This was the second in-person event organized by the KAIROS “Decolonization Group,” a small collection of mostly Saskatchewan-based settlers interested in working towards decolonizing ourselves (and others like us), and our partners at the Treaty Land Sharing Network. In August 2021 we organized an event at Fort Carlton to reflect on “Land and the Spirit of Treaty,” which you can read about here.
