The Cultural Sensitivity Workshop is a full day dedicated to understanding the historical trauma, oppression, racism and cultural insensitivity that Indigenous people have been subjected to for over 150 years.
In this workshop, we will look at:
Demystifying some myths and misconceptions of Indigenous people
The seven geographic areas that shaped Indigenous communities
Traditional Indigenous worldviews, spiritualties, relationships with the land, and beliefs vs. religion
European contact to the present
The effects & impacts of the Indian Residential Schools
Sensitive subjects and reclaiming Indigenous cultural identity
Cultural over-sensitivity and defensiveness
The harm in cultural appropriation
The goal of this workshop is to provide information on historical trauma and how it still impacts Indigenous people today, to learn how myths and misconceptions begin and how to begin demystifying, and how misconceptions and lack of Indigenous cultural knowledge can lead to cultural over-sensitivity and defensiveness.
