Indigenous Cultural Competence workshop

English

In the post-TRC era of reconciliation, many Canadians are considering what reconciliation might mean to their sector and to their leadership. Indian Residential Schools has generated multiple impacts on Indigenous families and communities, and some impacts continue to resonate and challenge wellbeing. Residential Schools were one of the most significant impacts on Indigenous communities, but it was not the only negative impact. Much of the history of Canada’s development and relationship with Indigenous peoples is hidden, and the secrecy is a barrier to Canada’s reconciliation.

What is unique about this workshop?

Due to the sensitive nature of the topic and the high level of trauma due to suicide in the territory, the teaching tools have been adapted to the local context. For instance, the teaching videos were filmed in Iqaluit and are based on scenarios that have meaning to Nunavummiut. This makes it a very powerful learning experience for participants. In addition, the material has been fully translated in Inuktitut, and we are working towards training more local trainers.
