Indigenous Initiatives


Our relationship with each other is our medicine. We strive to create safe and equitable spaces for Indigenous peoples. We recognize the legacy of colonialism and the intergeneratoinal impact of the Indian Residential School system.

Over the last five years considerable efforts have been made to create cultural safety for children and families within the Wood’s Homes community. We have many allies within Wood’s Homes, and they continue to amplify the voices of Indigenous children, families, communities and staff.

We engage in open dialogue to increase understanding of our shared history and and explore the meaning of reconciliation. Through ceremony, we build respectful and reciprocal relationships within and among diverse communities.
