Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about Indigenous topics and hear from the Indigenous guest speakers in this 12-session course offered by MCC British Columbia.

Listening to Indigenous Voices will explore Indigenous culture and worldviews, examine colonization, and discover ways to right relationships. This course is intended to deepen the process of reflection and is a learning tool suggested by KAIROS.

This course takes place over 12 interactive sharing circle sessions followed by a debrief. The format will be a combination of short readings, discussions, and talks from Indigenous guest speakers. All sessions will be hosted via videocall on Zoom.

Course Description
This course will increase knowledge about the diverse Indigenous Peoples of Canada, including their values, teachings, and understandings of land, spirituality, community and relationships. We will explore the history, practices, and core ideas of colonization in Canada. We will also explore concrete pathways toward right relationships. Throughout the course, we will focus on the importance of an honest and healthy understanding of "self" and relationship with Indigenous people.
