Want to understand how to become better friends, colleagues and neighbours with Indigenous peoples?

Reconciliation requires a deeper awareness of the truth of colonization in Canada. kinSHIFT delivers a powerful online workshop experience where individuals or corporate teams can learn, ask questions, and make mistakes while strengthening courage for engaging with Indigenous peoples.

Many settlers share the desire to contribute to change. kinSHIFT workshops support this desire by building skills for reconciliation in a welcoming learning environment. No background training is necessary.

Not Your Typical Webinar

In an era of increasing awareness of racial and cultural inequities, the approach used by kinSHIFT is described as medicine for relationships. This one-of-a-kind reconciliation initiative offers decolonization workshops that are grounded in Indigenous principles, creative practices, and experiential learning. The webinar fosters emotional safety where participants can explore their reactions, work through difficult emotions, expand their understanding, and practice shifting unconscious patterns. This is a space to express feelings, say the wrong thing, and make the mistakes that otherwise keep you silent.

“I really appreciated the sense of connection and inclusion. While there were moments of vulnerability, there was also space to explore this safely for everyone.”


Indigenous people draw from time-honoured practices that have fostered inclusivity across diversity for generations. kinSHIFT is a social enterprise program led by Indigenous women with British Columbia based IndigenEYEZ. Guided by principles of reciprocity and shared responsibility, IndigenEYEZ fundraises and delivers trainings that help Indigenous communities recover from the impacts of colonization. kinSHIFT was launched in response to recurring requests from settlers who are committed to making change.

“Powerful, deep workshops. So facilitation rockstars in my books!”
