Kweykway is a grassroots organization that is First Nations owned and operated by Denise Findlay who specializes in education, consulting and professional coaching. With years of experience working with over 120 First Nations communities and organizations throughout Canada Kweykway is able to provide customized services and programs that effectively address existing needs and challenges facing indigenous peoples.
We have extensive experience working with leaders, communities, parents, social workers, administrators, health centres, and educators to respond effectively to the challenges facing indigenous peoples.
At Kweykway we are dedicated to transformative education and endeavor to integrate both indigenous and western philosophies. This balanced approach honors traditional ways of knowing and being while utilizing scholarly research and evidence based practices validated by science. We are committed to developing programs and practices that include and promote place-based knowledge, personal and spiritual ecologies, first person ways of knowing, and relational and arts based practices.
We draw on the research of indigenous scholars Dr. Gregory Cajete, Dr. Marie Battise, Dr. Martin Brokenleg and others recognized in the field as leaders and educators. We integrate this knowledge with research in the fields of neurobiology and affective science, empathy development, transformational education, social and emotional learning theory, developmental attachment theory, process psychology, relationship research, organizational systems theory and current global bullying research.
