A Tribute to Kwìkwèxwelhp
Returning to the Teachings
In 2016, as part of the SFU President Dream Colloquium: On Returning to the Teachings- Justice, Identity and Belonging, an interdisciplinary graduate cohort was invited to visit Kwìkwèxwelhp Healing Village to further PDC participant understanding of intergenerational trauma and KHV’s model of healing in the context of Education for Reconciliation (sfu.ca, 2016). This article, written reflectively from the point of view of a PDC participant, explores KHV’s processes of healing rooted in Indigenous epistemologies of wholeness. In relation, the etymology and philosophical framework of one Indigenous model of healing, the medicine wheel, is examined.
