The Indigenous Social Work Diploma is a dynamic, culturally informed program that focuses on Indigenous Knowledge as a form of de-colonization and empowerment. Students are immersed in cultural teachings and discovery while learning the main pillars of social work practice. The program offers courses in Indigenous Language, Natural Helping systems, colonization, and cultural practice. The cultural content is delivered by Yellowhead Tribal Elders and students will be mentored by both experienced Indigenous and non-Indigenous social workers during practicum hours. Students will also have daily access to Elders and Indigenous instructors. Non-social work courses are geared toward enhancing knowledge in the areas of First Nations history, language, culture, and governance.
