This is an informational 1 or 2 day workshop designed for professionals, employers, agency employees, community members who want to know more about the inter-generational impacts from the residential school experience. This workshop applies a trauma-informed lens combined with attachment and grief information to show the four traumatized generations created by the forced removal of children from their families.
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has named the schools as cultural genocide.
The workshop is both experiential and didactic, and full of historical information. It offers tools for shifting relationships in the workplace and community to one of mutual reconciliation.

This is the exercise that inspired Kathi Camilleri’s ‘The Village’.
In the Indigenous circle there are five key values: Kindness, Gentleness, Honesty, Accountability and Humour. Together these values create Respect. One of the Haudensaunee teachings is that we are here on earth to have fun!
An Elder, Barney Williams from Nuu-chah-nulth has asked that we focus ourselves now on being Kind to one another.
This is a one day workshop for staff and management that provides fun, laughter, insight, and tools for turning relationships to kindness and overall respect.
