‘Because I feel empowered, I can speak from a stronger place now. I feel that I can not be the quite voice in the back row, I can sit up the front and strongly speak a bit more.’

‘I wanted to do this training because I really wanted to learn about now to support a First Nations person within the workplace. Particularly in a government workplace. And I feel like I got a lot out of this moving forward. I feel empowered to bring this learning and knowledge to others. Also, to move forward from tokenism within the workplace’.

“where you asked the question to reflect and where we fit in, that session was so powerful because at the end you acknowledged us and said none of you said Cultural Leaders”

My highlight was learning about the eight ways of knowing. I thought it was so beautifully put, especially in relating it back to the land, the community, to country. It was easy for me to understand how this would be applied in community leadership.

This training has given me a better understanding to support my students, and to start the yarn with them. I was not sure how to bring the conversation into the classroom, but I have more confidence now to have an open yarn. And your right, that young people a more in tune to truth telling and they want to know the truth of this country’s history with its First Nations peoples and communities. This has been incredibly powerful learning. Thank you both for sharing your knowledge.

The simple message of placing cultural safety in our practices to change the way we engage with First Nations peoples really supported what we have being trying to do but failed, we can see now were we went wrong and how we can build on our journey to ensure our practices are inclusive, that it’s not always government talk.

I work in family violence, and I work with First Nations co-workers who are incredible. I now see that maybe my support or attempts to support them might have come across as token and that I might have made things worse rather then better for the worker and clients. I feel ashamed to say this…I thought that I was aware and that I was being culturally safe. This training has really opened my mind and my eyes to really see my own privilege.
