To delve deeper into this practice of Indigenous Right Relationship building from the roots up ~

<<<< ♥ >>>>

>> The Heart Of It <<

We’ve each been colonized & this impacts everything ~ I understand this to be the deciding factor that determines the outcomes & informs interactions between our healing Ancestors ~ Life has shaped me in such a way to share understanding about this, in heartfelt, in-depth & empowering ways ~ I hold my hands up to the Elders, Mentors & Village that raised me, to the many Aunties that kept me in my heart & accountable to my emotions, to the Ceremony that gave my spirit a home ~ I was born during a time of tremendous healing with a responsibility to the generations to come ~ I honor the place in your heart that cares deeply for the Indigenous People, I honor the unwitnessed truths in your being that need a place to be ~ This is where we meet ~

<<<< ♥ >>>>

Together We Will Be Delving Into:

> What it means to belong to a lineage ~

> How we’ve each been colonized ~

> What the long term impact of this is ~

> How this affects being in Right Relationship with Indigenous People ~

> What’s at the heart of cultural appropriation ~

> What is right use of privilege ~

> What are some practical skills to use when building connection with Indigenous People ~

> What your identity is as someone who is currently on Indigenous land ~

<<<< ♥ >>>>

>> Five Fundamental Truths To Affirm <<

On This Shared Path of Indigenous Right Relationship Making:

1.) We’ve come a long way to be here right now, it wasn’t that long ago that our Ancestors couldn’t so much as be in the same room ~ Let’s unpack why & where to go from here ~

2.) In accordance with the teachings of my Elders & Village that raised me, vulnerability is a form of strength ~ Let’s become stronger together ~

3.) We are one anothers strongest resource ~ Let’s learn how to be with one another in the way of healing, feeling, knowing and growing ~ We belong closer ~

4.) It's not possible to engage in meaningful change without the risk of being uncomfortable ~ Let's be curious together in the discovery of wholesome discomfort ~

5.) You are a messenger of your Ancestors ~ There are unspoken truths living through you, passed on from your lineage ~ Let’s hear one another in deep & power’filled ways ~

>> Ferry & Transit Info. <<

Bowen Island is the closest island to the place now called Vancouver & is very quite easeful to get to ~ You get to the place now called Bowen Island by taking the ferry from “Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal” to “Snug Cove Ferry Terminal” ~

> For this training, it’s suggested that you be on the 5:45pm sailing from Horseshoe Bay ~

> Ferries run from around 5:50am until 10pm on the hour all day, every day ~

> Walking On <

> Transit: Take the “#257 Horseshoe Bay Express” from downtown Vancouver @ Burrard & Georgia ~

> Upon arrival to Bowen Island, you will take the "Bluewater #280" bus from right next to the Snug Cove Terminal, across from the library ~ Just follow the group of folks walking off ~

> It's a flagstop bus service with no actual designated bus stops, let the driver know you'll need to get off at the bottom of Bowen Bay Rd. ~ You can also let them know you're going to Shasta & Brian's place, they will likely know who you're talking about ^_^ It's about a 5-10 minute walk from where you'll be let off ~

> Bus schedules line up with when the ferry's arrive and depart ~ This changes a few times a year and google maps as well as translink isn't very good at keeping this updated ~ Just know that bus's always line up with ferry times ~

> Driving On <

About The Facilitator:

Pulxaneeks (Pul-ha-neeks) is from the Eagle Clan of the Haisla First Nation with Nuchanulth and Lummi Ancestry. With a background in cultural reclamation based youth outreach, Pulxaneeks is a skilled facilitator and grew up with the Indigenous environmental youth organization called “Rediscovery”. She later went on to work for Rediscovering offering support to at-risk Indigenous youth in various settings such as camps, schools, inner city programming and international cultural exchange. This is where her path of being a group facilitator, program designer and event producer was sparked 19 years ago.

Pulxaneeks was raised both on and off the Indigenous village she was born to and grew up being exposed to both Indigenous and non Indigenous cultures. Her most recent development is based entirely on the unique understanding that has come from being exposed to both cultures and from this came the development of this offering, Indigenous Relations Consultation. She honors the Elders, Mentors and huge family whose love she is a living result of and the Ancestors whose strength and resilience is flowing through her veins.

>> 2-4 Key Supporter People T.B.A. <<

The truth is, regardless of who you and where you're from, our Ancestors have been through a lot ~ There are many things that tried to obliterate all forms of goodness & you are living, loving proof that it didn't work
