Note: Prior to the workshop, participants should understand that we will be addressing Residential School and its effects in an in-depth way. Participation may trigger unresolved grief and loss issues for some.
Storytelling is a traditional way of teaching and is the method used most prominently in The Village Online Learning Experience. Participants will be asked to pay attention to what resonates as they listen to the stories. The elders say that there is always an opportunity to learn more when we look for it. Traditionally the same story was told many times. As participants listen, they are asked to try to harvest the wisdom that is in each story. Learning will be different for each participant.

Seminar Description

There are four modules:

  • Module One: Preparing For Our Journey Together
  • Module Two: Journey To A Pre-contact Village
  • Module Three: Colonization Of The Village
  • Module Four: Our Reconciliation Journey

Each module will take approximately and hour and a half to complete. Half hour to watch the video and ten - twelve discussion questions at the end of each module. Participants are asked to think/write/draw/talk with a buddy or small cohort to process what they learned.

Modules

  • In Module One you will meet the facilitator and some of the wise teachers and elders who have shaped Building Bridges through Understanding the Village©️ Workshops for the past 23 years.
  • In Module Two we will explore life in a traditional village before colonization.
  • In Module Three we will look at the history of colonization in North America through a non-blaming and non-shaming perspective. Participants will learn about resilience and acts of resistance during multiple waves of trauma.
  • In Module Four we will explore systemic racism, reconciliation how we can work together to change systems to make them work better for everyone.

Outcomes

  • Appreciation of Life in a traditional village before colonization.
  • Perspective on resilience and acts of resistance during multiple waves of trauma.

Cultural Safety Practitioner, Workshop Facilitator, Keynote Speaker and Community Engagement Specialist, The Village © Workshop Series

Kathi Camilleri created and facilitated the Building Bridges through Understanding the Village © workshop to increase cultural competency for organizations across Canada.

Kathi has almost 25 years of leadership experience in facilitating, counselling, developing, directing, and coordinating Aboriginal community-based programs. She has facilitated and managed culturally-based strategic planning sessions, conflict resolution, and counselling strategies for groups and individuals, developed community workshops to create understanding and support for families who are experiencing the generational effects of the trauma of residential schools, and she has developed networking circles to bring service providers together and to increase cultural competency.

Her work has been inspired by Jann Derrick’s teachings of ‘The Circle and The Box’ along with the input and teachings of many, dear Elders who often co-facilitate. She has certificates in Re-enactment Therapy for Trauma Survivors, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Trauma, and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and holds a Master of Arts in Leadership. Her thesis, Returning Home to the Values of the Village focused on the revival of culturally-based values in order to increase collaboration among staff within an Aboriginal service-providing agency.
