The CCEW is pleased to promote this webinar series hosted by the Learning Network and Knowledge Hub.

To create a workplace, marketplace and nation that is inclusive, equitable, accessible and truly values the strength of our diversity, we as individuals and a nation need to learn how our past has shaped our present. By building bridges of understanding we can create the future we all want for our children and our children’s children.

Join Amy Bombay on June 18th to learn more about colonialism and survivance as multi-generational violence and cultural strengths among the Indigenous Peoples of Canada.

Since first contact, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Peoples in Canada have faced various forms of violence, including but not limited to sustained assimilation efforts that resulted in generations of Indigenous children being exposed to abuse and neglect. As observed in other populations who have faced collective trauma, this has led to an increased risk for personal exposure to violent victimization among Indigenous Peoples. Despite the unique context of settler colonialism that has resulted in transgenerational cycles of trauma, Indigenous nations continue to practice and revitalize their cultural knowledges to be passed across generations and bring health and wellness to their communities.
