Kw'umut Lelum is holding talking circles in our Member Nation communities.
The Talking Circles have been designed for individuals living in the Nation or are members of the nine Kw’umut Lelum Nations who are familiar with ways of caring for our children and the needs within your community. They are limited to 12 participants so we can ensure that every participant has an opportunity to be heard.
The purpose of the Talking Circles project is to provide information and recommendations to Kw’umut Lelum Child and Family Services. We have chosen to participate in Talking Circles across all of our member Nations to discuss the results of the Needs Assessment Survey with you and with others from your community and to explore further with a set of 3 key questions.
Research of this type is important for Kw’umut Lelum’s service delivery, because raising our children well, with equal regard for their dignity and rights, is a mission to which we are called. By working together, we can help to create a strong community where families are supported to raise their children in a safe and healthy environment that addresses their emotional, physical and spiritual needs.
These sessions are free, and participation will include a meal, child-minding (if needed), with the possibility of follow-up conversations.
