JOURNEY FOR KNOWLEDGE

WFI’s Journey for Knowledge is a 10 month land-based immersion learning program that recognizes physical, mental and spiritual connections to the land, language, culture and food. 
 
Our program is Indigenous led by elders, knowledge keepers who help youth to develop awareness and how to make connections to the land. Some of the teachings include ceremonies, traditional medicines, the history of the land, hunting, how to be good stewards and how to speak the language among other activities.  WFI’s program can help youth re-engage their academic career, help build community connectedness, and maintain the language, culture and Indigenous practises.
 
The program also will engage the participants in a cross cultural exchange project and sharing of their knowledge. Learners will be immersed in production and set etiquette, share their own individual stories, and learn to share their own unique voices through the art of film!
