Module Topics

Through interviews with Indigenous experts across Canada, UWinnipeg has developed a program to guide participants through a journey of reconciliation. The seven module program includes carefully crafted videos and facilitator-led discussion. Group facilitation is a full-day, professionally guided, immersive and intensive experience for up to 20 participants per session.

The videos are between 8 and 13 minutes in length, and each module requires one hour (except for the module on residential schools, which requires 1.5 hours). 

The module topics include:

1. Treaties and Duty to Consult
Treaty and Aboriginal Rights, the duty to consult

2. What’s in a Name
The Indian Act, Indigenous identity and community membership

3. Ancient Ways, Modern People
The importance of culture for Indigenous health and well-being

4. The Children Taken, The Parents Left Behind
The history and legacy of residential schools, the aftermath, and healing

5. Living off the Land
The balance between economic development and the protection of traditional lands and resources

6. Research and Engagement
Respectfully approaching research and consultation with Indigenous communities

7. New Beginnings
Ways in which Indigenous youth are re-shaping educational institutions and Canadian society
