Aboriginal Awareness Training

Spirit Point has reawakened its Native roots as a host and provider of traditional Aboriginal programming. The facility, and sacred land surrounding it, has been blessed by several First Nation elders who hold the place as a spiritual vessel to help educate and heal all Indigenous cultures.

Spirit Point has had the honour of hosting a variety of Aboriginal programs such as:

  • Indian Friendship Center (cultural and family camps)
  • Walking the Path
  • Traditional Sweat Lodge ceremonies
  • Berry Fasts
  • Women’s retreats

Spirit Point wishes to deepen its partnerships within First Nation communities by aligning with providers of experiential and learning programs focused on Aboriginal culture to schools, boards, the public sector, and to companies focused in the natural resource sector. Spirit Point wishes to also promote these partnerships among other groups and organizations, resulting in the growth of Aboriginal awareness and training.
