“Changing the Conversation”
For the healing of Indigenous people to be effective, complete and lasting there needs to be a shift in consciousness. In an effort to achieve this, Kateri has made training one of the two central pillars of our organization.
Our training activities draw from both Indigenous traditions and Christian teachings to achieve several aims. They reconnect Indigenous people with their identities and provide them a sense of wholeness. They build up leaders in our community who can carry our vision of healing into the future. They also bring awareness of reconciliation as non-Indigenous Christians learn more about our cultures and traditions.
Training is conducted by experienced Indigenous Elders and a growing list of partners thanks to strengthened relationships with the Archdiocese of Ottawa, St. Paul University, and key groups such as the Jesuits of English Canada.
