INTERCONNECTED WAY OF LIFE

Indigenous peoples are the original architects of systems
– an interconnected way of life – that support the well-being
of humanity and the environment.

PRIORITIZE LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

Indigenous worldview affirms cultural identity, connects people and the environment, and informs our way of life.

 

We help design program models and plans for implementation and evaluation based on cultural frameworks.

EXPAND MINDSETS

Inspiration is born in an instant. Bringing new ideas into an organization, program or community often requires mindsets to change and expand about what is possible.

 

We take a high-level, holistic view of how the various partners work together to achieve better outcomes for all.

EVOLVE SYSTEMS

What is a system? Systems are a set of relationships, interactions, and values that work together as part of an interconnected whole.

 

We work to evolve the systems and processes in place by improving organizational coordination, cooperation, efficiency and effectiveness.

ACHIEVE OUTCOMES

Challenges can arise when funding requirements, accreditation standards, and evidence-based practices do not align with Indigenous worldview, values and definitions of ‘success’.

 

We bridge cultural wisdom with external requirements to achieve community aspirations, while maintaining important relationships.
