“The workshop was fantastic! I would come again in a heartbeat!”

“Amazing Facilitator! Rain is extremely skilled, knowledgeable, patient, encouraging.”

“Great discussion & space to explore our own ideas, experiences & contexts.”

In this interactive, experiential workshop we will explore the history and impacts of colonization in Canada, with the aim of understanding how we can now work to create positive social change. We will focus primarily on specific contexts for non-Indigenous people's decolonizing work. This will include creating space to define who we are as individuals and look at what it means for each of us to decolonize ourselves and the systems we work within. We will practice taking personal responsibility, including looking at what stops us and how we can overcome these struggles. Our aim will be to build allegiance with centuries of Indigenous resistance and to build new models for moving forward.

The workshop will be facilitated by Rain Daniels. Rain is Anishinaabe from the Saugeen Nation in Ontario, born in Coast Salish territory in Vancouver. She has worked with both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and communities for the last 20 years in capacities that include front-line work and community development. She also facilitates training, educational workshops, and community processes. Enhancing working relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people is the focus of her work.
