This was the first time after the Pandemic that the Caux Forum welcomed delegates to two sessions at the Initiatives of Change Conference Centre at Caux, Switzerland. More than 500 people attended.
Two IofC Canada board members, Mangalam Lena and YiYi Datar, and six individuals from the Global Indigenous Dialogue in Canada, attended its two sessions ‘Healing the Wounds of the Past’ and ‘Trust and Integrity in Democracy’ from July 17 - 26th, 2023.
Rainbow Cardinal writes ‘so proud of our three youth that came as part of Global Indigenous Dialogue’
It was absolutely humbling and inspiring to be part of Caux Forum 2023 in Caux Switzerland. Just being there itself was an experience of a lifetime, but to be part of a beautiful yarning circle, the cultural night talent show, and leading the youth discussion ... absolutely mind-blowing.
Lewis Cardinal, Elder Wil Campbell and I are all so proud of our three youth that came as part of Global Indigenous Dialogue, as I am sure that Uncle Shane Charles, Uncle Hewitt Whyman & Ron Lawler from Australia, are too.
Hinauri Nehua-Jackson, Taryn Ghostkeeper-Dachuk and Elijah Ingram are three incredible young people who have so much wisdom and insight.
Special thanks also to Dr Ian MacNairn for coming with us, for being part of our discussion panels, and also for supporting our Elders with such compassion and love.
