Our offerings are designed to create opportunity for deepened awareness of cultural sensitivities related to the Indigenous peoples.
Calling upon our own personal experiences, and utilizing our extensive background facilitation along with our combined knowledge of cross-cultural understanding, we share this important message of creating harmony between cultures.
Pulxaneeks is from the Eagle Clan of the Haisla First Nation. With a background in cultural reclamation based youth outreach, Pulxaneeks (Pul-ha-neeks) is a skilled facilitator. She grew up with the Indigenous environmental youth organization called Rediscovery. Her career in youth leadership sparked at age 14.
She went on to work for the Rediscovery program into her mid’20’s, offering in a number of different settings such as cultural youth camps, international/cross-cultural exchange, inner’city schools as well as inner-city after-school programming.
In her late 20's she then pursued an entrepreneur path of creating her own life-coaching modality that was inspired by her Indigenous cultural upbringing. She is currently working with a team in the development of a youth organization that will train Indigenous youth to be ambassadors for our planet.
Pulxaneeks was raised both on and off the Indigenous village she was born to and grew up being exposed to both Indigenous and non’Indigenous cultures. Her most recent development is based entirely on the unique understanding that has come from being exposed to both cultures and from this came the development of this offering, Indigenous Right Relationship.
Warren Hooley is a 30-year old Okanagan man from the Syilx (Okanagan) Territory in Penticton, British Columbia. His mix heritage of Okanagan and Irish/Ukrainian has had a big impact on who he has become today. Walking in two worlds of race, economic status and cultures, Warren has learned to adapt to both environments and acts a bridge between the two.
This is where Warren’s passion for building these relations stems from. The bridge of the ancestry inside himself and the exterior world are at a crucial point in history. He believes the fate and well-being of our species relies on the two sides coming together, seeing each other eye to eye and standing side by side.
For the past 7 years, Warren has passionately chosen a career of facilitating groups, delivering workshops across Canada and giving back to the world with laughter, connection and practical skills for life. Today, living in Vancouver, Warren continues to live a life providing communities, groups of youth and adult youth workers with the skills and awareness to make positive change in their lives. In the past 3 years Warren has immersed himself in hundreds of hours of facilitation training and leading over 500 workshops. “I have come to realize that Facilitation is more than a profession. To create true change one must live what they teach. It’s a way of thinking, doing and being. I am humbled and moved by it every day.”
