Indigenous Relations Building – From The Roots Up

How does honoring your own roots help cultivate connection with Indigenous People? Together we explore this in an in depth and interactive way. Calling upon our own personal experiences, we utilize story telling to create a deeper and heart felt understanding. Our extensive background in facilitation, along with our combined knowledge of cross-cultural understanding makes for a very integrative and impactful workshop.
