Course Outline

Module 5 begins to draw attention to one’s positionality in relationship with Indigenous people.  It examines structural and critical change; experiences of working with Indigenous people and combating institutional racism toward change.

Ben generates a space where participants can deeply explore their positionality. He brings a depth of life and teaching experience to the circle process.

As participants, you will leave with:

  • Experience Indigenous protocols for examining treaty relations, privilege, and a wholistic sense of our identity.
  • Respect cultural teachings in a circle process that connects us to land and treaties.
  • Explore your position (individual, racial, cultural, national, professional, spiritual) in colonial history.
  • Have an experiential learning experience about your role in “truth” and “reconciliation."

Learner Outcomes

  • An increased understanding of the relation between your identity and colonization

  • More knowledge, tools and resources to utilize in your community, professional, and land relations
  • A network of people with common learning goals and visions for our future
  • A desire to continue learning about your position in the work of decolonizing Canada?
