Canadian Fundamentals

(1 Hour)

 

Participants will leave Indigenous Peoples; Fundamental Information on Canada’s Past, Present, and Future with an assured sense of what Truth and Reconciliation means, especially as it pertains to The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

 

They will also receive information on updated Canadian terminology and a better understanding of fundamental issues such as systemic racism and intergenerational trauma in Canada, which may have blocked them from participating in past conversations on Indigenous topics. 

 

Participants will learn that true reconciliation involves meaningful dialogue and how valuable it is for them to have a voice through knowledge empowerment, and most importantly, how their voices are needed now more than ever.

 

Please note:  This presentation contains the voice of Bryan Hansen’s grandmother, a survivor of the white assimilation process. Attendees will be confronted with historic and present-day truths which may make them feel uncomfortable.  We address this in the presentation and discuss why it’s important to sit with being uncomfortable, while asking participants to contemplate why they may be feeling that way.  Once again, this is done in a respectable manner, in a safe learning environment.

North American Fundamentals

(2 Hours)

 

The goal of Indigenous Peoples; Fundamental Information on North America’s Past, Present, and Future is to empower individuals with the baseline knowledge and skills needed to participate in popular culture conversations, specifically related to Indigenous matters, both within and outside of the workplace.  It features the voice of Bryan Hansen’s grandmother, a survivor of white assimilation, to help anecdotally relate the content in a more connected manner. It includes Canadian and US content for a holistic overview of the situation of Indigenous Peoples in both countries, outlining similarities and differences as close neighbours.

 

Participants will leave this session with an assured sense of correct terminology and a better understanding of fundamental issues such as systemic racism and intergenerational trauma in the US and Canada, which may have blocked them from participating in past conversations on Indigenous topics.  Participants will learn how valuable it is for them to have a voice through knowledge empowerment, and most importantly, how their voices are needed now more than ever.

Subscription Inquiry

What online course participants have to say...

"I feel more confident about dialogue and more informed. I have followed much of the harrowing stories of indigenous peoples. I have struggled with understanding the correct terminology, and have prior to this session referred to indigenous peoples as First Nations, Metis and Inuit. I feel much happier knowing now I am confidently referring to indigenous peoples correctly."

Training Participant

 
"Bryan had an excellent speaking voice and was very relateable. I actually enjoyed learning about everything he covered in the presentation."

 

Interfor Participant

"Absolutely eye-opening. I realized how uninformed I was regarding Indigenous Peoples subject matters. Thank you for bringing this topic to light. Hard to fathom such atrocities and injustices. Kept my interest from beginning to end. Very informative and well done."
