Kyle Patrick, Smiley's Smoking BBQ
Prior to the course I feel like I backed away from challenges and now I have the confidence to face them head on.
Anita Patrick, Moccassins and Crafts
The beauty of the program is the energy everyone had when we were coming together. Even when I had technical difficulties, they were overcome. We could problem solve together.
Jacqueline Turvey, JT Respiratory Services
When I found this course, I had been searching around for years. I didn’t have time or resources to go back to school. I was searching for online opportunities that would fit into my life and wanted something that resonated with me, especially as an Indigenous person. Then my sister sent me the link and I said “This is it! This is what I’m looking for”
Linda Dan, Balance of Life, Traditional Teaching
It’s teaching me ways I have been wanting to learn in steps that I understand. I can talk to the teachers on the side. The program is personalized.
Ed Jensen, T'kemlups Traditions
The modules have been very validating. It's stuff I've been doing for years but I'm gaining confidence that I'm on the right path, that I'm doing the things I need to do to make a successful business and a legacy for my grandchildren. It has really encouraged me to start thinking big.
