Post a summary of the cultural knowledge of a Canadian Aboriginal culture/community of your choice.
Identify the source(s) which you used in your research.
In your summary, discuss the following:
• the community – location, size, resources, challenges (access, services, etc.)
• the culture – cultural roles and responsibilities of community members, e.g. family, adults, children, youth, elders
• communication (tribal language, use of silence and body language)
• personal space (very important has no boundaries)and time orientation
• cultural customs and celebrations
• spiritual beliefs and/or religious affiliation(s)
• cultural practices related to health and healing
Compare one similarity and one difference between your own cultural heritage and that of your above findings. What approach might you take to demonstrate cultural competence in working with a person from this cultural heritage?
