RISE – Reconciliation in Solidarity Edmonton. We were a group of citizens in the Edmonton region committed to reconciliation in actions and words.
RISE respectfully acknowledges that our work took place in the territory of Treaty Six – the traditional lands of the Blackfoot, the Cree, the Dene, the Nakota Sioux, and the Saulteaux and later the Métis and settlers and descendants of settlers from all over the world. The banks of the North Saskatchewan River has been a sacred gathering place for tens of thousands of years since time immemorial. Peoples from across Turtle Island have been coming here to share, learn, trade, and celebrate – the same spirit and intent that grounds our work of reconciliation.
As of March 2022, RISE is no longer offering programming and has ceased operations.
