What is 'Colonized' Rehab
'COLONIZED' REHAB is a collaboration between Indigenous Insight and HUM Consulting and an initial step in creating a safe Indigenous engagement community of critical thinkers interested in a conversations that discuss and clarify common misconceptions non-Indigenous peoples may have towards Canada’s Indigenous peoples (i.e. recent comments of Alberta's Premier as an example). Decolonization should not only be a process only for non-Indigenous peoples; Indigenous leaders elected by their communities should also question their level of colonization and what is best for their commuities.
Tough topics such as reconciliation, Canada’s land question (i.e. treaty negotiations), white privilege, racism, systemic racism, leadership are always encouraged, and explored. Critical thinking on the part of all participants is a requirement to participate.
Indigenous engagement primer is available: purchase the Indigneous Cultural Awareness Training Backgrounder (ICATB) PDF document for priority access into Colonized Rehab sessions. This ICATB provides an excellent orientation to Colonized Rehab dialogue sessions.
'COLONIZED' REHAB will be scheduled on the first Friday of every other month with the next session of taking place February 3, 2023 (9:00 am to 12:00 pm - PT). This session is now full.
There is no cost to attend.
