EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Building Bridges Through Understanding The Village: An Experiential Exercise in Reconciliation through Education with Kathi Camilleri

During this experiential workshop we will explore our personal role in supporting the revival of the values that worked so beautifully in indigenous villages for thousands of years. We will also explore in‐depth the effects of Residential Schools, Boarding Schools and the Policy of Assimilation. This workshop is geared to solutions rather than recrimination and is a great forum in which to ask questions. Participants who participate in these often emotion provoking workshop experiences comment that while they understood a bit about the issue on a cognitive level, after participation in Building Bridges Through Understanding the Village they understand on a deep emotional level as well. The workshop is done from a non-blame and non‐shame perspective and invites all participants to become a part of the healing that IS already happening. Kathi’s work has been inspired by Jann Derrick’s teachings of ‘The Circle and The Box’ and by many Elders' teachings.

Kathi Camilleri is an Aboriginal woman who has coordinated healing programs in the Aboriginal Community for 19 years. She has a Master's Degree in Leadership Studies. Kathi works with Aboriginal Mental Health and has her own consulting business. She facilitates strategic planning sessions and experiential workshops regarding The Policy of Assimilation and Colonization with social workers, foster parents, health care workers, church groups, students and educators, frontline workers in communities across Canada.

Learning outcomes:

A cognitive and emotional understanding of traditional First Nations values,

A deep and emotional insight into the depth and intergenerational effects of Colonization,

Methods for creating supportive relationships in a positive way.
