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 Albertans? What does intergenerational trauma mean?

Space is limited to 25 participants

Course Objectives:

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. The intimacy and sharing of the stories will be treasured. I loved how the facilitators not only welcomed you to the learning’s, but also their personal stories. During the breaks the teachings continued. Thank you for that. I will share what I can and look forward too many more teaching – Thank you” – May 2016.
