INDIGENOUS CULTURAL RESILIENCE & TRAUMA-INFORMED PRACTICE WORKSHOP

As stated in the Truth and Reconciliation Final Report, “Reconciliation is not an Indigenous problem; it is a Canadian one”; it is a historic mission for all Canadian institutions to address the unique needs of Indigenous people.

Workshop Description:

Participants will be engaged in a journey of experiential learning, self-exploration, and awareness development as we investigate impacts of historic trauma and contemporary priorities together. Maya Chacaby facilitates what many participants have described as ‘life-changing experience’, where thought and emotion meet to help both Indigenous and non-indigenous members of society remember the inherent responsibilities. Foundational teachings from Indigenous knowledge will enhance individual and organizational practices and foster the development of meaningful and mutually responsible relationships with Indigenous people.

Objectives:

• Develop a critical historical analysis of contemporary Indigenous & reconciliation issues

• Explore the process of building culturally competent, ethical practices

• Enhance culture-based approaches that will strengthen the reconciliation process

• Develop new strategies for engagement with Indigenous people reflective of a mutually inherent responsibility

Agenda:

• What we know today: The colonial story of the ‘Indian problem’and the current reality of Indigenous people

• Historic markers: A look back to understand the relationship, and why things are the way they are

• Moving forward: Indigenous historic trauma-informed practice & engaging the indigenous community
