SICC Traditional Parenting Workshops

Annually, the Saskatchewan Indigenous Cultural Centre (SICC) plans, coordinates and facilitates Traditional Parenting Workshops for interested First Nations to assist in passing on traditional knowledge from local Elders and Knowledge Keepers and at times, guest speakers. These workshops are grant dependent, however with dedicated staff and community contacts, these workshops have been proven to be extremely valuable. The workshops also aim to include the community's First Nations language as much as possible.

To date, SICC has conducted workshops in the following locations:

2009 - White Buffalo Youth Lodge, Saskatoon
2011 - Sakewew High School, North Battleford
2011 - Peepeekisis Pesakestew School, Peepeekisis First Nation
2011 - Okanese Band Hall, Okanese First Nation
2012 - Reserve Land, Whitecap Dakota First Nation
2012 - Band Hall, Muskoday First Nation
2012 - E.D. Feehan High School, Saskatoon
2014 - Big Island Lake Day Care, Island Lake First Nation
2015 - Pelican Lake Campground, Pelican Lake First Nation
2016 - Saulteaux Heritage School, Saulteaux First Nation
