Who is the workshop for?
The workshop runs on September 17 from 10:00 AM - 12:00 (noon) Pacific time.
IndigenEYEZ puts Indigenous principles and practices together with cutting-edge tools in social engagement to deliver workshops that build bridges between allies and Indigenous peoples. It uses playfulness and creativity to ease participants into difficult conversations in a safe way.
Founded six years ago, IndigenEYEZ has shared its unique brand of trainings across BC and beyond, touching 7,000+ people. IndigenEYEZ is at the forefront of a movement to position Indigenous people as essential contributors to creating a livable future for all of us on Turtle Island. It is a project on the shared platform of MakeWay, a charity dedicated to a healthy environment, social equity, and economic prosperity.
Facilitated by Kelly Terbasket, Program Director: IndigenEYEZ

Here are a few words from Andrew on the challenge, the journey, and the workshop.
“Building sustainable impact models and sustainable, regenerative economic models is of utmost importance as communities face increasing economic and social division. The way forward is inclusive, equitable, and cross-cultural. Not acting is no longer an option.”
“Unsure of what to do or scared to take steps? Me too. I invite you to learn with and from others in this workshop. Collectively we improve Indigenous cultural inclusion and race equity to make way for a different future.”
