Culturally Appropriate Use of Indigenous Language Workshop


Communicating effectively in a culturally appropriate manner can demonstrate respect and help you build trust and relationships with Indigenous audiences which may include First Nations, Inuit and Métis.

Join us for an informative, two-hour virtual session that will share best practices for using language in culturally appropriate ways when communicating with, for and about Indigenous Peoples.

What you’ll learn

Learn about terminology to use and avoid when communicating with or about Indigenous Peoples, how to identify and avoid using biased language, tone, and best practices we use as an Indigenous-owned and majority-staffed communications agency.

You’ll leave the session feeling more confident about how to use language appropriately and effectively, ready to apply practical skills when communicating and a resource guide with practical teachings you can apply to your work.
