Episode 92 – Exploring Wahkohtowin

On today’s episode, we sit down with our friends at Edmonton Shift Lab to hear about one of their latest projects aimed at shifting perspectives to eliminate racism. It’s a new board game called: Exploring Wahkohtowin.

Wakhotowin is a Cree word that expresses the interconnected relationships we experience with the people and environment around us. Wahkohtowin expresses something that is constantly in motion and evolving. It’s about how we choose to treat each other, how we interact with where we live, even how we impact our environment, and our environment has a strong impact on us. It’s a complex idea that the developers of the Exploring Wahkohtowin game want players to experience.
