At TeKnoWave, we believe that Indigenous knowledge and values are crucial to the future wellbeing of the world, and that building Indigenous capacity in every professional field is essential for developing the strength of Indigenous communities from within.
TeKnoWave is one of the rare educational institutions in Canada who has embedded the concepts and principles of Indigenous wholistic education into the conceptualisation, development, content, delivery and evaluation of a our programs which are aimed at future workers in the community services sector. TeKnoWave’s vision and its longstanding commitment toward the advancement of Indigenous education and employment is fully endorsed by the Indigenous Certification Board of Canada (ICBOC).
Our Programs are designed with the concepts of holism and Indigenous ways of knowing and being at their center. We collaborate with Indigenous organizations, Elders, and community knowledge keepers to ensure that our programs meet the needs, interests, and wise practices of the Indigenous communities.
We are developing new programs that further empower Indigenous adults and contribute to building stronger, more self-reliant Indigenous communities.
Traditional craft making led by an Indigenous craftsperson is a component of each program and we have made moccasins, mukluks, rattles, drums, longbows, arrows and tipis.
