"At General Synod in July 2019, a historic motion to create a self-determining Indigenous Church was passed. There was a general call for more education for reconciliation tools to support Settlers and Indigenous Canadians alike in learning more about truth and reconciliation. PWRDF is poised to help fill the gap with 'Mapping the Ground We Stand On', an education for reconciliation tool first developed four years ago by staff from PWRDF and the Anglican Church of Canada to better explain the concept of 'terra nullius' (empty land) and the Doctrine of Discovery in a tangible and physical way. It has been presented to dozens of communities across Canada and the fourth edition of the Facilitator's Guide will be printed in early 2020. But it will get an even greater boost. In June 2019, PWRDF brought nine volunteers from across Canada to Winnipeg to train them as facilitators. Each of the four Ecclesiastical provinces has been equipped with a large floor map, a key component of the exercise and the facilitators are working together to share this resource". Michael Shapcott, Executive Director of the Sorrento Centre in British Columbia has presented the exercise several times. "I am grateful for the opportunity to be trained in the exercise, and see it as a great tool for our reconciliation journey together".
