Event description

Description

Indigenous Cultural Competency is an ongoing cycle of learning, a continuum. The intent of the OFIFC’s Indigenous Cultural Competency is for organizations to obtain the necessary skills, knowledge, attitudes and values in order to foster meaningful and informed relationships with the Indigenous community.

Cycle 1, the first session developed and delivered by the OFIFC, frames understandings of Indigenous peoples by working through a series of four questions. “Who are Indigenous peoples?” “Where have they been?” “Where are they going?” Learning can then focus on answering, “what are my responsibilities?” These questions offer a critical pathway to action that re-centres ‘culture,’ informs relationship building, enhances organizational programs and policy, resulting in increased overall Cultural Competency.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop a critical analysis of contemporary issues in order to increase cultural competency

  • Show how contemporary issues are connected to historic context

  • Explore how organizations and agencies can strengthen engagement with Indigenous peoples and organizations to provide relevant services

  • Provide participants with a basic understanding of how to interact with Indigenous communities

  • Share a culture-based framework for improving organizatonal cultural competence

*Please note lunch and light refreshments will be provided
