Training & Events

Training Stream

Our training steam holds our core program ‘8 Ways of Knowing’. The 8 Ways of Knowing program is a relational learning system that is based on the traditional knowledge wheel – a process of building cultural knowledge and sharing that is passed down through generations. First Nations knowledge is traditionally transmitted to the next generation of knowledge keepers at different stages of maturity and wisdom. The 8 ways of knowing learning process allows deep understanding, connection and practice that embeds cultural identity and understanding.
