Current rehabilitation practices are not working. Many focus on the wrong elements or put the focus in the wrong order. We have learned that to heal the heart of our communities, we must move beyond the dominant systems that disengage and disempower us.
The demand for training and education on reconciliation and Indigenous peoples is growing, especially in relation to the National Inquiry Into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG), the calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC), and the rights for Indigenous people as outlined in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP).
Clan Mothers recognizes the opportunity to better educate people on Indigenous and women’s issues locally, nationally, and internationally – and to better serve the victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking, using Indigenous holistic methodologies.
Following the success that the group has had in the past, Clan Mothers has developed a broader range solution to increase its capacity for outreach and healing within Indigenous communities.
