National Queer and Trans Playwriting Unit Community Offering with Smokii Sumac
Moving from being a "Good Visitor" to Honouring our Relations: a Workshop on "Land Acknowledgements"

Join Ktunaxa poet, academic and emerging playwright, Smokii Sumac as he invites you out of your comfort zone and onto the land in this critical look at the current trend of Land Acknowledgements. Smokii was inspired to create this workshop after witnessing how many people and organizations see acknowledging the land as a "check box" to "get right." Smokii challenges the notion of being "right" when it comes to our relationship to the lands we live on and the people who are from here—people whose ancestors have been here for millenia. For those living on territories far away from where their/our own ancestors are from, what does it mean to be a good visitor? Is it enough? Can we go further into understanding ourselves as good relations? In the spirit of relationality, kinship, and decolonial love, Smokii asks you to consider your own relationship to the places and spaces we take up, and the people who are still here in those places and spaces. How can identifying and understanding our values and responsibilities change the way we walk and talk in our meetings, businesses, buildings, events, homes, and lives?

This workshop has a limited capacity and is offered first-come-first-serve. Zoom captioning will be available. If there is additional support you need to attend the workshop or if you have any questions, please email
