Bringing Back the Village: Indigenous Awareness in the Early Years with Jade Brass

This workshop will take the participants on a journey of pre-contact, contact and today’s realities for Indigenous people across Turtle Island. This journey will allow the participants to understand ways of life before contact, and the challenges brought on by settler colonization. With open discussion on the Indian Act, residential school, 60’s/millennial scoop and the ways to bring Indigenous people’s resilience into our lives in an authentic way. This journey will be facilitated with respect and vulnerability. With an opportunity to ask the questions you always had regarding Indigenous people.

Anin Jade Brass nitisinihkas the Key First Nation nitonci. I studied at Native Education College ‘NEC’ and have my Indigenous Early Childhood Education Diploma. I am continuing my studies at UBC to obtain my bachelor of Indigenous Educations through the Indigenous Teacher Education Program ‘NITEP’. I have come full circle to now teach at NEC with both the IECE certificate and diploma program. I am grateful to have had time   working on the floor at Uy’sqwalawun  Headstart, Langara Child Development Centre and Eastside Family Place. All these center’s place emphasis on land-based learning, community inclusion and decolonizing childcare spaces. As Anishnaabekwe my goal is to continue to be a positive role  model in our community and do this work for our children and our unborn babies.
