Course Description

Wholistic Healing Practices and Colonial Trauma Certificate, Module 11, is brought to you by the Centre for Indigegogy. For generations, Indigenous peoples have relied on sophisticated traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) to transform their world to ensure intergenerational thriving. These land-based practices correspond to a complex and sophisticated worldview that accounts for moon, sun, and seasonal cycles, which guide community activities. This two-day workshop will introduce you to foundational concepts of the Anishinaabe worldview related to land- and-water-based learning and offer you strategies to immediately apply these concepts to current and future projects. You will learn to enhance both personal and professional relationships with Indigenous land-and-water-based knowledge that can support your community towards reconciliation. You will also learn to address present-day issues surrounding food security, sustainable habitat design, land and water restorations, and climate change.
