Join us for a 6 session series on decolonization with Hummingbirds Rising: 

Hummingbirds Risings helps non-Indigenous Canadians develop the skills, compassion, and abilities to recognize and change systems and practices so they can play an active and meaningful part in Decolonization. 

By the end of the workshop series, participants will be more self-aware, better able to demonstrate cultural literacy and discover ways to better serve the populations with whom they work. 

Participants should bring with them an open mind and open heart to get the most out of what is sure to be an enlightening workshop series.
