a part of the Indigenous Education for Newcomers Initiative, an initiative that addresses the historic injustice and trauma that has contributed to deep social, cultural, economic and spiritual challenges for Canada’s Indigenous people. Working in partnership with Making Treaty 7, University of Calgary, Calgary Police Services, Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth, Calgary Immigrant Educational Society, and the 12 Community Safety Initiative, along with City Councillor Brian Pincott, Federal MP and Cabinet Minister Kent Hehr, and Tim Fox of Calgary Foundation, our ultimate goal is to support efforts aimed at ending cycles of systemic discrimination and abuse faced by Indigenous people through culturally appropriate educational workshops on Indigenous issues, meaningful partnerships that seek to create alliances for public education and awareness among both partners and within the broader community.

The rationale is that engaging in ongoing public dialogues, enhancing professional development and training for public servants, strengthening intercultural competency in Indigenous matters are all part of Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s call to action aimed at addressing historic trauma and historic injustice of Canada’s Indigenous peoples (TRC, 2015)
