Allying With Indigenous Peoples Cultural Solutions The Practice Of Omanitew
In early 2012, the Alberta Association of Services for Children and Families (AASCF) now ALIGN Association created an Advisory Group to discuss the training needs of human service workers who work with Indigenous children and families. These training opportunities continue and are in high demand. Visit ALIGN Training to Register for any Upcoming Cultural Solutions Sessions – if none are scheduled please check back
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 Community?
OK! 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 days (3.0), 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 beaks the teachings continued. Thank you for that. I will share what I can and look forward too many more teaching – Thank you”
