Take Working Effectively with Indigenous Peoples® and save $50 as compared to taking Indigenous Awareness and Indigenous Relations training individually.

This is the original foundational course for Indigenous Corporate Training Inc. Extensive field testing has confirmed that any training should be designed to help individuals work effectively with Indigenous Peoples rather than just raise awareness. For this reason, our goal is to help you get beyond Indigenous awareness to practical skills and tools that can be applied everywhere.

Participants will be provided with historical background and its relation to modern issues that affect Indigenous Peoples. In addition, participants will explore cross-cultural perspectives, appropriate vocabulary for conducting business, and business reasons for developing Indigenous relations. This course advances beyond awareness to focus on how to cultivate individual and organizational strategies for developing relationships.

This training is the equivalent of taking both the Indigenous Awareness and Indigenous Relations training individually.

Topics covered in the course include:


  • Historical Background of Indigenous Peoples
    • Pre-contact
    • Contact History
    • Post-Contact History
    • Recent History
