Indigenous Right Relations: Pulkeneexks & Warren Hooley
In this workshop you are provided with the information, tools and resources needed to develop a greater awareness about cultural sensitivities related to Indigenous culture. This workshop is interactive and experiential. Calling upon our own personal experiences, we utilize story telling to create a deeper and heart felt understanding of the Indigenous story. Our extensive background and combined knowledge of facilitation as well as cross-cultural understanding makes for a very integrative and impactful workshop.
Pulxaneeks (Pul-ha-neeks) is from the Eagle Clan of the Haisla First Nation. She has been facilitating in various ways for over 15 years. In her 20's she created a life-coaching modality and is currently working with a team in the development of a youth organization that will train Indigenous youth to be ambassadors for our planet. Her most recent development is based entirely on the unique understanding that has come from being exposed to both Indigenous and well as non-Indigenous cultures.
Warren Hooley is a Half Okanagan Indigenous (Native), Half Caucasian man born and raised in Penticton, British Columbia. Currently living in Vancouver B.C, Warren defines himself as an ‘Inspirational Hip-Hop artist’ and much like the classic roots of hip hop, Warren stays true to keeping his lyrical content based on life experience and social change. Fusing other genres of music with hip-hop and adding his flare of passion and authenticity, Warren creates music that inspires and moves people of all walks of life. “ It’s an incredible feeling to share the depth of my vulnerability and intense passion through the medium of spoken word and be accepted so warmly & excitedly”.
