Connecting Indigenous Organizations and the BC Government
I was an Assistant Deputy Minister with the BC Government in the Indigenous relations, natural resource and tourism ministries.
▸ lead workshops on Indigenous relations, government structure, and "how to brief",
▸ produce podcasts based on my workshops, like the ones below.
Introduction to Indigenous Relations in BC
I've condensed my "Introduction to Indigenous Relations in BC" workshop into eight short sessions.
They're meant for people who are new to Indigenous relations in British Columbia, and need an overview of some of the key points.
Are they as good as one of my workshops?
Heck, no. You don't get the questions and answers, and the general discussion that adds real value. You also don't get my anecdotes, which is arguably a good thing.
But they're free, and the Creative Commons license I've applied allows them to be shared and adapted, subject to giving me credit.
Dealing with the BC Government:
An Overview for Indigenous Organizations
The BC government is terrible at explaining how and why it does things.
Session 2 builds on that by touching on a number of topics, including tips on meeting with and writing to Ministers, how government makes major decisions, the role of the public service, and a quick introduction to its natural resource policies.
