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.
