This course focuses on Indigenous Peoples’ lived experiences in becoming “family”. Students explore natural helping-networks inherent to Indigenous Peoples’ place based knowledge, relationships and experiences. Impacts from more recent and ongoing colonial systems through assimilation policies and practices over time are approached to support students in appreciating how they can assist in providing culturally appropriate family support, promoting family wellness and safe environments for all through their own professional practices.
