IndigiNews invites you into our virtual Storytellers Lodge for a two-day learning circle. This special Decolonize the Media training series is co-hosted by IndigiNews and Your syilx Sisters Consulting and is scheduled for March 2-3 via Zoom.
The training will include sessions focused on land-connected storytelling, trauma-informed reporting, decolonizing and Indigenizing the newsroom and allyship. Sessions will include discussions with presenters and attendees.
Because of the gravity of the work and the engagement required, we are capping the training at 250 folks so that we can deliver the best offerings possible.
