Workshops

ESSO Imperial Oil FoundationThank you to Imperial Oil Foundation for their generous contributions in supporting the Stardale Model program in the community. The model embodies a holistic view of the woman from the perspective of gender, education, health, literacy, justice, community, and social inclusion with an encouragement towards self-sufficiency.

There are a variety of workshops tailored to the needs of the community:

  • The Stardale Model curriculum (deals with abuse/violence, co-dependency, grieving)
  • Gender roles and demystifying the media's depiction of females
  • Violence and trauma - how it affects learning
  • Proposal writing
  • Assessments to design and to deliver projects in your community
  • Networking and capacity building

The Stardale Model - For the Enlightenment of Women

The Stardale Model has been written into a curriculum format. The manual contains all the detailed information for the setup of the education/healing environment, in conjunction with the activities and lesson plans.

The model is a 14 week/5 day per week extensive self-development tool. This is to be implemented as a multi-disciplinary approach to healing, education, culture, community development, and prior learning.

Missing Women's Conference

Missing Sisters: An alarming trend, the disappearance or death of Aboriginal women, is emerging across Canada. Specific evidence includes the Picton pig farm killings, the missing women on Highway 16, the Native Women's Association of Canada's Sisters In the Street campaign, the creation by the Saskatchewan RCMP of a department to investigate missing women, Amnesty International's STOP Violence Against Women Campaign which focuses on Aboriginal women, and lastly, Aboriginal director Christine Welsh's movie Finding Dawn, which tells the stories of missing women from Vancouver to Regina.

In August 2008, the Missing Indigenous Women's Conference was held in Regina, Saskatchewan at the First Nations University, Luther College, and the Conexus Arts Centre. The three day conference had women attending from Canada, the United States and Mexico. Stardale was actively involved in the pre-conference and the conference delivery. It was here that the comic book, "Life As You Don't Know It," was first launched.
