Is the Groundwater Initiative content being integrated into the on-site courses?
Yes. The Groundwater workshop is held during the first week of the distance program (for new students), and for the public in June/July each year. The Groundwater Initiative is integrated throughout the KATI program, integrating Indigenous perspectives, methodologies and principles. KATI also has Indigenous Elders as teachers and mentors teaching and assisting during the program. KATI’s theoretical courses are currently being reviewed and revised to reflect the principles of the Groundwater Initiative, further integrating recognition of Indigenous perspectives and methodologies into all aspects of our work.
