About the Training
Young people who are not connected to cultural teachings and opportunities often struggle through life with confusion, identity issues, cultural pain and shame, feeling lost and most often yearning for that cultural connection. In many cases, young people who grow up with without cultural teachings and opportunities for healing grow up to be adults without cultural teachings and opportunities to live by cultural values. This training is for youth workers and others who serve youth to bring back more skills, information, techniques and resources to the workplace in order to better serve Native youth. A team of Native adults representing different tribal nations, all who utilize culture-based programming with their youth programs, will be the facilitators.
A day-long field trip will be included to the Indigenous Wellness Institute, a Native Hawaiian, culture and land-based program serving Native Hawaiian youth. This hands-on day will be led by staff and helpers of the Indigenous Wellness Institute.
Ceremony, traditional games, healing processes and more will be included in this highly interactive three-day training that will leave you changed in a good way and with a road map to bring this positive change back to your workplace.
