We need to prepare the next generation as our teachings are a source of strength and identity. There is a need for more facilitators in this field as we can all make change. It is now time to Reclaim that knowledge and provide and implement programs by using our Indigenous philosophies. ReClaiming our Indigenousness is ‘reversing the process of colonization’. It is time to reach and claim our ancestral identity in order for our people to move forward. We need to start promoting the pride and history of our people from the perspective of the Indigenous Worldview. The breakdown of our family systems began with colonization and residential school. When the first set of children went away our family systems began to deteriorate. The workshops that Mahkesis Consulting provides are about awareness of ‘how it was in our Traditional Family Systems and ‘how we can bring back these teachings along with the parenting skills and most importantly it is prevention. She has presented to all language groups and the teachings are similar in each nation. This workshop is recommended for Parents, Elders, Leadership, Youth, Teachers, Social Workers and Front Line Staff   Traditional Family Parenting Turtle Lodge – May 13 – 14, 2015 Sagkeeng First Nation, MB
