Indigenous Protocol: Building Awareness Toward Engagement with Understanding
Raymond Boisjoly / Brenda Crabtree / Mimi Gellman / Richard Hill /Mark Igloliorte / Michelle Sound
There has been a growing interest over the last number of years by faculty, staff, students and researchers at Emily Carr on the subject of Indigenous protocols. Among the many protocols that exist, we have research and teaching protocols, protocols for social and ceremonial gatherings, protocols that acknowledge and honour the land and its sovereign nations, protocols for personal introductions and for addressing elders, invitation protocols and gift and honorarium protocols among many others. This is a broad and multifaceted topic that we can only just begin to address in this brief session. The workshop will shed light on some of the principles and values of Indigenous protocols through examples and anecdotes presented by our panel, while also conveying the complexity and diversity of understandings and beliefs carried by Indigenous  individuals and nations. In the end these protocols or the way we do things all adhere to a fundamental principle and that is, the cultivation of respectful relations.

Creating a Respectful Workplace
