First Nations groups and indigenous organizations play a special role in our nation, helping facilitate growth, healing, and a positive future for their people.
Colette Squires and Associates provide culturally sensitive services and supports to a variety of indigenous groups, helping them reach their goals. Services include program design and proposal writing, training, group facilitation, and conflict resolution strategies. Processes are customized to the unique traditions and cultural practices of the group.
“I felt like Colette could see right through into the deepest part of the situation—she is really intuitive about what is going on. She helped us see what the other person was trying to say when we couldn’t communicate well with each other, and that helped us understand each other better. She gently but persistently moved us towards greater self-awareness and self-examination, without triggering defensiveness or defiance.”
