Allying with Indigenous Peoples – Cultural Solutions (Calgary)

September 25, 2017 @ 9:00 am - September 28, 2017 @ 4:00 pm MDT


Calgary September 25 – 28, 2017

How do I understand the recommendations of the Truth and Recommendation Commission (TRC) or the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)? How can I apply these directions to my own life, and to my work with Indigenous people? How do I act as an ally? What does that look like? How do I offer programs that are meaningful to Indigenous Calgarians? What does inter-generational trauma mean? If you are thinking about these things, we invite you to join us on a learning journey………

This training is intended to provide professionals who are interested in expanding their knowledge on working with Indigenous peoples through an educational and experiential opportunity.  Over three and a half days (3.5), participants will gain a deeper understanding, and personal experience on Indigenous history and perspectives through various traditional teachings and protocols, and how these relate to the delivery of human services with Indigenous service users. As previous participants said,

“Reg and Rose are also incredible teachers and knowledge holders. They are presenting concepts that are difficult for “white mind thinkers” to grasp. I am really gaining some amazing insight. I am excited to carry forward in my work, and hopefully build upon.
