Join Ecosource as we welcome Dr. Debby Danard to facilitate a FREE ONLINE workshop as part of the Youth in Action-Credit Connections program. Dr. Debby Danard is Anishinaabe, sturgeon clan, born in Atikokan Ontario and member of Manitou Rapids, Rainy River First Nations in Northwestern Ontario

The Youth In Action Medicine Wheel teaching will support Youth to think holistically and inclusively from Anishinaabe perspective.

Beginning in the eastern direction, the knowledge that will be shared will be understanding vision and the formative years of childhood, next the southern direction will be discussed as it relates to relationship and the time of being a youth and young adult. The western direction will be shared as it connects ways of knowing and the time of being an adult (parent), and the northern direction will be discussed as the direction that brings action and also connects to being an Elder. This workshop will provide a foundational knowledge of Anishinaabe perspective and worldview and aspires to support the youth as leaders for change in their community. Water teachings will be shared as they relate to the whole cycle of life and living. Please have a glass of water in an open vessel/cup available at the start of the workshop.

A Zoom link with instruction will be sent to your email before the session. Please email sgoncalves@ecosource.ca with any questions or concerns.

Please note: video for participants will begin off for the session and all participants will have the choice on if they would like to turn on their video or not.
