Centering Community Through Holistic Education

Please conact us to book or learn more...

Waaban Nang is shortened version of Waabanang Anong which which represents  the Dawn/Morning Star in Anishinaabemowin. The 8-pointed star depicted in our logo is culturally significant and is represented on quilts and quillwork across Turtle Island with roots in the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota nations. For us, the Dawn star represents a new day and the transference from one era to the next. It represents new life, change, protection and guidance to a new day.

Professional Development and
Cultural Awareness Offerings

  • Circle and the box is a teaching tool to share the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada. Participants were invited to step into the role of First Nations people and experience what it must have felt like to live in these communities during colonization, residential schools, the sixties’ scoop and now.  (In-Person)
  • The Blanket Exercise is based on using Indigenous methodologies and the goal is to build understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. Everyone is actively involved as they step onto blankets that represent the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases empathy.  (In-person) adult and youth versions available!
