Frequently asked questions
Will we learn about culture in the workshop?
Our workshops are created as learning spaces about systemic racism and colonization impacting Indigenous People’s lives. This main learning is recommended preceding learning about culture. We hope non-Indigenous people will learn a decolonizing view of their identity on Indigenous land, before sharing a space to learn about culture.
How does your work connect to Reconciliation and Indigenization?
We recognize that Reconcilitation and Indigenization can have varied meanings. We take a decolonizing antiracism approach to learning. In this way, our workshops are designed to support people to learn various aspects of critical and decolonizing engagement. We aim to provide people with the tools to be better positioned to take actions in both their work and their day to day lives.
How do you deliver these workshops in Covid times?
Our current workshop delivery is online in live time. We have heard from many participants that our Zoom workshop, was more interactive than anticipated. The nature of the activities keeps participants actively engaged throughout the workshop.
How long are your workshops?
Do you offer 1/2 day workshops?
With the exception of the "Meaningful Land Acknowlegement" workshop, we predominately do full-day or multi-day workshops to support a decolonizing learning process. There are some exceptions. For more information, please contact us. firstname.lastname@example.org
How many people per group for your workshops?
16 is the ideal number but we will accommodate up to 20 people.
How much do you charge?
As contactors, we are covering all of the expenses that are usually covered for employees. With that in mind, we also consider what the organization can afford, within reason. We will be happy to speak with you more about this.
What preparation will I need to do?
We provide a 'Workshop Set-up' document containing the Zoom link and other 'Tips'. In general, we ask participants to ensure they have a private space to work, and a computer (not a tablet or phone) is preferable.
