There is a huge need for indigenous knowledge and practices to be passed along in the child care field. Often child care providers do not feel comfortable regarding this topic and not much is done in their daily activities with children. This workshop will take the participants on a journey to understand pre-contact, contact and today’s realities for Indigenous people. We will focus on residential schools, diseases, the Indian Act, the potlatch ban and Indigenous people living on reserve and off reserve. This journey will allow participants to understand the Indigenous people’s challenges and the pride over resilience. This will be a safe space for educators to discuss, ask questions in an open and respectful manner. Come and ask all the questions you always had regarding Indigenous people.
SUITABLE FOR ALL EARLY LEARNING AND CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS
