Event description
8 Ways of knowing: Working in two worlds. For non First Nations allies working with and in the First Nations Space.

About this Event

What is the 8 Ways of Knowing:

The ‘8 ways of knowing’ is a relational learning system that is based on the traditional knowledge wheel – a process of building cultural knowledge and sharing that is passed down through generations.

Traditionally knowledge would be passed on to the next generation of knowledge keepers at stages of maturity and wisdom, to build deep understanding, connection and practice.

Working in Two Worlds:

First Nation employees working in mainstream agencies often feel burdened and experience challenges that impact on their cultural safety and wellbeing. The concept of ’working in two worlds’ might be new to many cross-sector agencies but for First Nation employees this can be a barrier to career satisfaction and progression.

In this sessions we will work to build a deeper understanding of 'Working in Two Worlds', how you as allies can best support and facilitate cultural safety within your organisations, lead in the First Nations space to support your First Nations colleague to contribute without feeling burdened.

Topics covered in these sessions:

• Working in two worlds

• Communicating in two worlds

• Cultural Obligation and the First Nation worker

• tokenism

• Allies in the workplace and cultural safety

• Importance of Cultural Mentoring

• Yarn with First Nation Elder

Program Structure:

Sessions will be facilitated via Zoom, links will be emailed to registered participants.

The 8 Ways of Knowing: cultural mentoring – Working in two worlds program will be facilitated over four days (equivalent to a full day training), each session will be two hours. We have divided the days across two weeks. Sessions will run in the mornings 9:30 - 11:30 or in the afternoon from 3pm - 5pm. We do this so that it does not interrupt the rest of your day.

Recording of Session:

Please note that we do not record sessions. Participants are required to ensure that they block two hours on each of the dates to attend the training.

Refunds on tickets:

We understand that sometimes things happen and we need to change plans. SALT is happy to make a refund to participants who 'change their mind' about attending the online training.

We advise participants to make any 'change of mind' refund requests 7 days before program start. We will not refund once program has started online. So again, we advice participants to ensure that they set the dates aside, blocked the times out for the session dates. First Nations knowledge build and sharing takes commitment and requires the same respect to non-First Nations training. So please choose well.
