“Allan is adamant that the sharing of information to correct the misconceptions about Aboriginal people, treaties, etc is the only way that all Canadians can prosper from this unique relationship. Allan believes a greater understanding between the indigenous peoples of these lands and the new comers is what will forge a respectful and lasting existence. Allan’s many talents have enabled him to take this message to a variety of audiences.”  – Robert Maytwayashing (former Chief of Lake Manitoba First Nation), Aboriginal Human Resource Development Officer, Interlake Regional Health Authority


“I just wanted to let you  know that the class had many good comments about your talk.  They thought it was “thought provoking” and it gave them an awareness to many things that were unknown to them.  I think you are an amazing teacher, approachable, respectful, and so very knowledgeable.  Thanks again for coming to visit us and sharing. “ Donna Sutherland, Author of Peguis: A Noble Friend’ and ‘Nahoway: A Distant Voice’ 


The Indigenous Cultural/Historical Awareness seminars provide information to clarify thinking and dispel myths about Indigenous peoples of Canada.  The workshop/seminars establishes linkages between historical events and present day issues.  Through a series of workshops/seminars, subjects cover Indigenous history and culture, demographics and today’s social issues, self-government and treaties, and traditional teachings and storytelling.  The ultimate goal of the Indigenous Cultural/Historical Awareness seminars is to build understanding and respect.  It’s about relationship building.

The first step in building relationships between cultures is through cultural understanding and appreciation. The participants will walk through the history of the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, from pre-contact, to today. This includes the Indigenous values, traditions, history, current state and future direction, practices and protocols. For First Nations people, this workshop may also be the beginning, renewal and/or strengthening of First Nations understanding of who the First Nations people are and where they come from and moving forward to a greater future within the Canadian society of Kanata.


Workshops are customized based on the audience needs. For example, a workshop for medical doctors may incorporate a focus on traditional medicines and traditional teachings of the healing ways of the Medicine Wheel.  For First Nations leadership we would focus on Treaties and Self-Determination goals within the Canadian federal system.
