Thursday, September 7, 2017 9:00am-3:30pm OPG – Auditorium, 2500B 2nd Street W,

Cornwall, Join us for a 1-day Cultural Sensitivity Training offered through a collaboration between the Native North American Traveling College, Akwesasne Area Management Board, and other community programs. This workshop will feature community elders speaking on traditional cultural stories and lessons. This training is intended to provide participants with a greater understanding of the indigenous experience and equip us with tools to act as allies in our personal and professional lives.

Throughout the training, participants have the opportunity to build a shared understanding of contemporary priorities, the concept of allied relationships, Aboriginal wholistic healing, and the importance of infusing on-going Aboriginal cultural competencies throughout organizational practices through meaningful engagement with the Aboriginal community.

Topics will be left open to allow for fluid conversations to take place throughout the day. If you have particular questions that you would like to have answered, they may be submitted prior to the training. There will also be several opportunities throughout the day to pose any questions that may arise.

This training will be taking place in a culturally significant venue, and will allow participants the opportunity to more fully engage with the cultural environment. Lunch will be prepared by the College, and will be made up of traditional native dishes.
