Course Description

This two-day module developed and delivered by the Centre for Indigegogy will focus on engagement with Indigenous Elders in respectful and meaningful ways.

We will learn from each other and consider how to engage with Elders in various contexts while considering relational responsibilities.

Participants will begin to acknowledge the role of institutions in contributing to meaningful recognition of Elder engagement.

Build an understanding of factors to consider when creating a plan to engage Elders.

Participants will use circle methodology to envision wholistic practices in working and engaging with Indigenous Elders in terms of the spirit, heart, mind, and presence of Elders in one’s work.
