This certificate allows participants to engage with teachings about Indigenous peoples and communities, Indigenous perspectives on law, and Indigenous legal systems and draw on cross-cultural learning opportunities to help develop skills based cultural competencies, such as listening, reflecting, and witnessing.
Participants must complete all seven modules. Participation in a module includes completing readings for and attending the Tuesday experiential learning opportunity or guest lecture, as well as the corresponding educational talking circle for that module.
The talking circle component of each learning module offers students the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the initial experience through both small group discussions and a talking circle.
Participants must also complete a self-reflective journal after each module/ talking circle in order to theorize how to put into practice skills based cultural competencies they are learning.
