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. This journey will allow the participants to understand challenges brought on by colonization with discussion on the Indian Act, residential school, 60’s/millennial scoop and ways to bring Indigenous people’s resilience into the classroom in an authentic way. This journey will be facilitated with respect and vulnerability. Come and ask all the questions you always had regarding Indigenous people.
