About this event

Fire Across The Land - "Strengthening Community Connections"

Impacts of Residential School and Colonization Workshop.

A powerful experiential workshop to help educate Service Providers of the collective trauma that has impacted Native people throughout Canada's history.

After understanding that a collective trauma exists, participants will better understand how the feelings such as; fear, shame, learned helplessness, and anger began to infiltrate into our communities and led to the disempowering behaviors and social conditions that we see today.

With this change in perception, by having experienced these impacts during the workshop, participants will have an accurate understanding of why Native people see, think, feel and behave the way they do.

As a result, service providers will be better prepared to effectively communicate and empower the Native members of their communities.

This workshop is highly recommended not only for all members of Hollyburn Family Services but as an individual in our community.

Arrive early as coffee and tea will be available before. And a short break with a light lunch of pizza and beverages will be served mid presentation. Hope to see you there!
