Six Module Online Course

This is the Reconciliation “How-To” Guide everyone’s been looking for!  It is a six-module self-paced online course that comes with a number of options – Individual Self-Directed Online Course or Customized Corporate Online Course. All course materials are located on our online campus and include a series of incredible videos with up to four guest panelists (Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Youth) for each module bringing their unique perspectives and both modern and traditional world views to the topic and content.  Each participant also has access to our valuable curated collection of supplemental resources specific to each module, as well as homework assignments based on the medicine wheel teachings. Course participants also have an opportunity to join our private online facebook group and to ask questions and interact with the Sakatay Global team and other course participants. In addition to the online campus experience, organizations also have an opportunity to enhance the learning for their staff through custom live, interactive training sessions with Sakatay Global experts and Knowledge Keepers via video or teleconference.

This is an introductory course.  This is for you if you want to:

E

Understand the history of Canada from a First Nations perspective

E

Learn more about First Nations culture and language

E

Learn in a comfortable, safe, inclusive environment

E

Be able to ask those awkward questions without feeling silly or embarrassed

E

Explore reconciliation for both your personal and professional growth

E

Learn how to create positive relationships with Indigenous people and communities

E

Have fun! Laugh a little! Share some stories! Participate in traditional teachings! Belong!

This course is not for you if you want:

 

E

An academic-focused course filled with theory and pedagogy

E

A linear approach with a clear beginning and end – it is circular, concepts will be interwoven and layered

E

A reflection of all teachings and nations in Canada – that is beyond the scope of this course – it will offer both national and regional perspectives depending upon the topic

“The Indigenous Circle Approach to Cultural Confidence is an incredible way to learn about Indigenous people in Canada. Shannon is a terrific facilitator, and every Canadian should take this course.

 

 


Regional Chief Morley Googoo, Assembly of First Nations Regional Chief for Nova Scotia 

“As a non Indigenous person working in an Indigenous organization I was eager to participate and learn in a comfortable and inclusive setting. Although I had taken Cultural Awareness and Cultural Safety training previously neither had the impact on me that this course did. The weekly format worked perfectly with my schedule but I also had the opportunity to view on-line the one session I missed. I believe that at the end of the sessions I had a greater understanding of First Nations culture, language and history. I would not hesitate to recommend The Indigenous Circle Approach to Cultural Confidence to anyone wishing to learn more about the history of Canada from a First Nations perspective.”


Martha Beach, Tipi Moza

“Thank you very much for leading this great course. I greatly appreciated the opportunity to gain exposure to different Indigenous cultural practices throughout the course.”


Scott Turnbull, Pathways to Education Canada 

“The course was great! I’m excited about the next part of my journey.”


Cassandra MacGregor, Bishop Alexander Carter CSS 

“I wanted to be able to gain confidence that I could communicate about Indigenous issues in a respectful way, and I feel that the course has helped me do this. I wanted to be shaken out of my perspective, and by challenging my assumptions, I have learned a lot. The course has also shown me that we all share responsibilities in reconciliation. I have a responsibility to always remain aware and keep learning and conversing about these issues.”


Valerie Busch, Pathways to Education Canada 

“Thank you for sharing your knowledge, experience and struggles with us. Hopefully I am a little more educated then when I started. The course challenged me in many ways: it challenged what I thought I knew and understood. I will move forward with a more open mind and listen to what people are saying a little more closely. I will take my knowledge and share it with my students and those around me.


Sandra Hayden, Sudbury Catholic Schools 

“Thank you again for teaching us and walking with us on this journey.  I really loved the course and appreciated everything you and the panelists shared with us.


Rosie Yeung, Pathways to Education Canada
