First Peoples Child and Family Review

Young people are experts in love and fairness, and leaders in the reconciliation movement. It is our great pleasure to present this special child and youth edition of the First Peoples Child & Family Review. Meaningful reconciliation must engage young people in learning about Canada’s history of colonization, encourage creative thinking about the future, and provide opportunities for children and youth to make a difference. Engaging young people in reconciliation and social justice nurtures compassion and moral courage, and bolsters self-confidence. Adults have much to learn from the wisdom of children and youth. 

Each submission in the journal was reviewed by another young person to ensure the publication is respectful and conveys fairness, togetherness, respect, and love. 
Thank you to all the children and youth who sent submissions for the journal. We recognize and greatly appreciate all of the hard work that went into each and every submission. We encourage all of you to keep on doing the amazing things you are doing to make this country one that uplifts both Indigenous and non-Indigenous children, youth, and their families. We look forward to the future with hope for a brighter, better Canada for all.

Warriorship: Leading Brave-Hearted Pro-d Friday, February 23

Brave-hearted leadership is needed and being called forth; we are at an urgent and disruptive time in human history that calls on our best selves to lead with courage, love and fierce determination. 
Let’s explore:
What is warriorship? What does it mean to lead brave-hearted?
How can we best access this wisdom? And sustain it? And inspire it in others?
How do we develop brave-hearted principles as well as practicewarriorship with more grace and mastery? How can we build a community of diverse warriors who can individually and collectively contribute to transformative change? 
This engaging workshop will harness the energy and wisdom in the room to co-create a safe and courageous space to explorewarriorship. You will leave with teachings, reflections, and the inspiration to lead brave-hearted.
We will start the day with bannock, fruit, tea & coffee and move into a beautifully prepared traditional lunch from Salishan Catering.
