Indigenous Perspectives

Beyond language and terminology, this workshop explores concepts of Two Spirit and Indigiqueer identities situated in the larger conversation of colonial impacts on concepts of gender and sexuality. Bridging the gap between TRC Calls to Action in education and SOGI education initiatives, this 2-3 hour workshop asks participants to engage in the deeper conversation of situating themselves in understanding the ongoing impacts of colonization in relation to gender, sexuality, community and culture. This presentation is typically geared towards older students (grade 9-12) and is perfect for Social Justice and Indigenous Studies curriculum.

While we can always be flexible with the lengths of our workshops, they are multi-faceted and require the time to do well. We typically tailor them to your unique learning objectives in a 75-90 minute session.

Our presentations are tailored to meet your needs; we can support with language, terminology, and support students in understanding the importance of allyship with takeaways of how to turn knowledge into action. Our presentations are geared to uplift 2SLGBTQIA+ representation through film, education and dialogue. We understand that many folks are coming from different places of knowledge and experience; our skilled facilitators can support the process of bridging the gap with your students. 

Yes. Until further notice, Out In Schools is being delivered digitally over Zoom. Participants can “zoom in” from personal devices, or teachers can “zoom” us in to their classrooms!

We can present to groups of all sizes, however our digital max is 90 participants in a Zoom room.

Upon request, we can deliver a Keynote address ranging in the 45 min-60 min length.

At this time, we are taking precautions and presenting digitally. We hope to be back on the road as soon as it’s safe to be!
