Understanding the history of Canadian/Indigenous peoples, and the effects that history has on Indigenous people today, is only the first step in creating culturally safe workplaces, service providers and societies in general. For those who want to continue to help heal the past and create a better future to leave for our children, we need to look openly and honestly at Allyship.
This program transcends factual learning about Indigenous issues and encourages participants to examine their own actions and motivations. It is an invitation to look at privilege and power and how those things can be used to support marginalized groups, instead of perpetuating an inequitable society.
Participants in this full day workshop should already have a solid background in Indigenous issues in Canada.
