This one-day module will focus on un-packing internal and external displays of ongoing colonialism. This session sets a foundation for other modules at The Centre of Indigegogy, and participants will be able to apply a decolonizing lens.

Participants will begin to acknowledge how Canada’s policies have contributed negatively to social indicators of health and well-being in Indigenous communities.

 

Participants will build an understanding of the systemic and structural indicators of colonialism and how it continues to inflict harm on Indigenous communities.

 

Participants will use circle methodology to envision wholistic healing practices in the contexts of colonial trauma and how colonization has impacted Indigenous people’s emotional, spiritual, mental and physical beings.
