TALKING CIRCLES AND COMMUNITY/CLASSROOM DIALOGUE
Our Indigenous people need to see themselves in places of positivity, leadership and success. We take a storytelling approach to our talking circles and community/classroom dialogues. Our ancestors used myths and stories to transfer knowledge from generation to generation. There is no better storyteller than an Indigenous person who was an Indigenous youth and can tell a story where there are enough points of shared Indigenous youth experience and upbringing. Indigenous people need to connect with particular growth mindset details and dream of new realities and future for themselves.
Together we allow Indigenous people to dream their own futures and envision a new dream. Seeing themselves in our story and being able to choose to envision a new future for themselves beyond what they might have been exposed to in their particular community.
