A collaborative community program that is designed to bring awareness, action and empowerment for mainstream organizations to create safer environments for the Indigenous Peoples in their care. Now, more than ever, the call for safer spaces inside mainstream organizations of care is needed for Indigenous Peoples in our community.
Building Powerful Connections
Working Together- Wiijinokiiwag
We believe that we can walk together in the creation of a brand-new path of understanding, collaboration, support and growth that will not only support Indigenous Peoples but all peoples in unity & kindness to safely explore and create new paths of healing for all.
This 1.5 day Virtual Program will open conversations of awareness and allow insight into creating bundles of care within your organization that support Indigenous Peoples in healthy ways of empowerment and strength. Wiijinokiiwag – Working Together is rooted in that community awareness and grounded in the framework of supporting the cultural wellness circles of care.
What Do We Do?
The Working Together – Wiijinokiiwag Program opens conversations of awareness, support and learning through storytelling, reflection, and action.
From this lens several opportunities are presented, allowing organizations that support Indigenous Peoples a deeper understanding of how Indigenous culture is a crucial piece in the care bundles of clients they support.
The call for safer environments inside mainstream organizations of care is needed for Indigenous Peoples in our community.
