DPS-60200 Indigenous Insights

Add to My Courses

Through interviews with Indigenous experts across Canada, UWinnipeg has developed a program to guide participants through a journey of reconciliation. The seven module program includes carefully crafted videos and facilitator-led discussion. An online approach allows organizations to provide training to all employees without a significant time commitment. The modules can be viewed together or separately, allowing employees to learn at their own pace. The videos are between 8 and 13 minutes in length, and each module requires one hour (except for the module on residential schools, which requires 1.5 hours). The module topics include: 1. Treaties and Duty to Consult Treaty and Aboriginal Rights, the duty to consult 2. What's in a Name The Indian Act, Indigenous identity and community membership 3. Ancient Ways, Modern People The importance of culture for Indigenous health and well-being 4. The Children Taken, The Parents Left Behind The history and legacy of residential schools, the aftermath, and healing 5. Living off the Land The balance between economic development and the protection of traditional lands and resources 6. Research and Engagement Respectfully approaching research and consultation with Indigenous communities 7. New Beginnings Ways in which Indigenous youth are re-shaping educational institutions and Canadian society
