Indigenous Cultural Awareness Workshop

Two-Day Workshop


Indigenous Cultures Awareness Workshop is a two-day workshop that aims to bridge understanding between health-care providers and their Indigenous patients and patients’ families. Participation by all staff working for Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is encouraged.


This two-day workshop introduces a basic knowledge of the world views, spiritual and cultural values of Indigenous peoples, highlights historical and contemporary issues that influence Indigenous peoples, and honours the rich diversities within Indigenous communities.


  • Increase awareness and understanding of Indigenous cultures in a health-care setting
  • Increase ability to provide culturally competent and proficient care
  • Gain knowledge to build a culturally respectful workplace

Indigenous Cultures Awareness Workshop (ICAW) is the base workshop offered by WRHA Indigenous Health and acts as a foundation on which participants can grow their knowledge by taking additional workshops featured in this booklet.


9:00 am – 4:00 pm
