About this event

Indigenous Awareness in the Early Years. This workshop will take the partici-pants on a journey of pre-contact, contact and today’s realities for Indigenous people across turtle island.
This journey will allow the participants to under-stand ways of life before contact, the challenges brought on by settler coloni-zation with discussion on the Indian Act, residential school, 60’s/millennial scoop and then ways to bring Indigenous people’s resilience into our lives in an authentic way.
This journey will be facilitated with respect and vulnerability. Come and ask all the questions you always had regarding Indigenous people.


Anin Jade Brass nitisinihkas The Key First Nation nitonci. I studied at Native Edu-cation College ‘NEC’ and have my Indigenous Early Childhood Education Di-ploma.
I am continuing my studies at UBC to obtain my bachelor of Indigenous Education through the Indigenous Teacher Education Program ‘NITEP’.
I have come full circle to now teach at NEC with both the ECE certificate and diploma program.
I am grateful to have had time working on the floor at Uy’sqwalawun Headstart, Langara Child Development Centre and Eastside Family Place. All of these centres place emphasis on land-based learning, community inclusion and decolonizing childcare spaces.
As Anishinaabekwe my goal is to contin-ue to be a positive role model in our community and do this work for our chil-dren and our unborn babies.
