Students will explore Indigenous cultural issues and Indigenous community realities within the context of the human services field. Indigenous world views are examined and presented with knowledge and skills relative to Indigenous cultural, values and practices. Students learn from an Indigenous perspective through field placement and culture camp experience, and focus on personal growth, organization/community development, communications, program  planning skills, interviewing/counselling, family and group work.
