Truth & ReconciliACTION (Vancouver)
May 25, 2020
Build bridges. Strengthen relationships.
The Truth & Reconciliation Commission urged all Canadians to work together to make the changes needed for reconciliation. The Calls to Action challenge Canadians to change perspectives and policies at every level, to confront hidden biases, and to address power imbalances.
Do you wish to cultivate right relations but are unsure where to begin? The Truth & ReconciliACTION workshop will share tools to respond to the TRC Calls to Action.
By looking inward and examining your own identities, intersectionality, and background, you will gain a deeper understanding of what you bring to your relationship with others. We will also explore your connection to the people in your life in order to relate with greater empathy.
IndigenEYEZ facilitators create a holistic pedagogical experience using story, land-based learning, and traditional teachings. They specialize in building trust to form healthy connections, a central point of leverage in social capital.

IndigenEYEZ co-founder, Kim Haxton, shares with us where the name IndigenEYEZ comes from and the importance of looking inward in tandem with outwards:
IndigenEYEZ is about transforming communities; to inspire an intergenerational legacy of well-being among First Nations people in BC and beyond. IndigenEYEZ facilitators blend land-based learning with the arts and best practices in community-building. Their approach – the Creative Empowerment Model – is being used around the world. It has been refined over the past two decades by Partners For Youth Empowerment (www.PartnersForYouth.org), an organization that generously shares its knowledge with many partners. IndigenEYEZ has adapted this approach especially for First Nations. The vision of IndigenEYEZ is shared and supported by an incredibly talented network of dedicated facilitators. indigeneyez.com
