Training: Indigenous Awareness

Playing our part on the Path to Reconciliation

We have partnered with Anokiigamig, an indigenously owned construction company to develop and deliver an on-line training course: Understanding the Indigenous Peoples’ Story in Canada.

Anokiigamig also publishes an educational bi-weekly newsletter to aid your internal Indigenous Awareness training program. Subscribe to this on Substack:

The interactive, 5-module, online course has been designed to increase Indigenous awareness.

Understanding the Indigenous Peoples’ Story in Canada was commissioned by Anokiigamig Construction Group to meet the need for an easily-accessible indigenous awareness course for companies and institutions. Content was researched and created by a team of indigenous experts in conjunction with Seven Generations Education Institute. The course is narrated by Joe Hunter from the Rainy River First Nation and Waawaategiizhigok (aka Shannon King) from the Otter Clan of the Nigigoonsiminikaaning First Nation. The course programming along with graphics, videos and other interactive content were created by educational design experts.

The course is designed to bring a balanced and educational tone to difficult topics in the interest of promoting understanding, empathy and communication. We also have the ability to create bespoke courses relevant to any region in Canada and catering to the specific needs of any organization.
