Our Services.

The Indigenous Voice and Vision program aims to deliver culturally relevant supports and services to lift-up, empower, and heal Indigenous Family, Youth, and Children.

Best practices and approaches include one-on-one and group support (i.e., Talking Circles), cultural workshops (Pow Wow Dancing, Drumming & Singing, Storytelling/Theatre workshops), and family nights.

Contemporary workshops include Podcasting 101 and Fitness/Wellness.

Our Services.

Education – We offer Indigenous-led workshops and media to connect our urban Indigenous community to their culture. We also often open up these workshops so we can educate the community about Indigenous culture and traditions. Some of these include our powwow dancing and our podcasts.

Leadership – We connect with our community partners to collaborate and ensure Indigenous voices are included and heard. We also offer workshops for community partners on cultural awareness and protocol.

Kinship – At the heart of what we do is kinship, family support and community. We are here to connect the Indigenous families in and around Richmond to the supports and services they need. This includes assisting with educational, housing, health and crisis supports, as well as connecting to culturally specific programs, funding and services.
