Grounding Our Resilience through Indigenous Approaches to Wellness

2 November 2020

Webinar Format
Interactive Workshop

Information Sharing
Presentation and Q&A


Perspectives on Indigenous resilience are as varied and diverse as the distinct communities where this knowledge is held. Narratives of resilience are rooted in culturally unique concepts that are nested within the richness of Indigenous languages, protocols and knowledge. Through the sharing of teachings on cedar as a sacred medicine, this session aims to honour a space of wellness through a dialogue grounded in strategies of Indigenous resilience.
