NORTHWEST INDIAN OIC ANNOUNCES A NEWLY ACCREDITED TRAINING IN CULTURAL COMPETENCY

Bemidji, MN—November 11, 2013. Northwest Indian OIC is pleased to announce Anishinaabe World View, a newly accredited training in Cultural Competency. The training is a result of many gatherings of elders, teachers, critical thinkers and traditional Anishinaabe, and the voices of our Members, who share with us, their experiences and their recommendations to make our communities, Native and Non-Native, healthier, safer and culturally enriched places. Cultural competency is critical to reducing disparities and improving access to high-quality programs that is respectful of and responsive to the needs of diverse populations. Cultural competence enables systems, agencies, and groups of professionals to function effectively to understand the needs of groups accessing services.

Anishinaabe Worldview- Cultural Competency

This course will give a general understanding of the Anishinaabe. It will give learners a historical framework from which to understand and articulate the Native experience today. The outcome will be an empowered sense of identity in the Native learner and increased understanding in the Non-Native learner.

Participants can receive Continuing Education Units (CEU) or 3 college credits from Northwest Technical College and Bemidji State University, as well as a certificate of completion.

Registration fees for this training, as with all our trainings, are used to support the ongoing services of Northwest Indian OIC, a Native American-controlled community based nonprofit organization. http://www.nwioic.org
