Indigenous Knowledge

Certificate of Achievement | 98611

Humber's Indigenous Knowledge certificate is a unique program that provides you with an opportunity to develop a foundational knowledge base for awareness and understanding of Aboriginal people and culture as it is known and understood from an Indigenous perspective. Offered in conjunction with Humber's Aboriginal Student Services, the program provides you with the cultural competency necessary to establish and maintain meaningful relationships when working with Aboriginal people or in Aboriginal communities.

For Aboriginal students, Indigenous cultural competency will prepare you to work in Indigenous communities, organizations, and programs. Cultural competency for Aboriginal students means the development of a significant cultural knowledge base complemented by the enhancement of the ability to translate Indigenous knowledge into meaningful and effective applications in the contemporary Indigenous environment.

Cultural competency for professionals working with, or preparing to work with, Aboriginal people, communities, organizations, and programs in the contemporary Aboriginal environments means the development of a significant cultural/historical knowledge base for the building of cultural awareness and sensitivity for effectively working with Indigenous people in the contemporary environment.

In all cases, the Indigenous Knowledge Certificate program provides you with the Indigenous knowledge base necessary to develop successful and effective responses to the needs of Aboriginal Peoples and communities in the contemporary Indigenous world.

Additional Information

Humber Media Studies Professor Edits TIFF Film

Humber Media Studies Professor Edits TIFF Film

Fri, September 13, 2019

Lara Johnston, a Professor and Program Coordinator for the Post Production graduate certificate, edited the feature film Mouthpiece.

Mouthpiece was the opening night film for the Special Presentations section of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Mouthpiece is directed by iconic Canadian director Patricia Rozema and in the words of Danis Goulet, TIFF programmer, is “a potent exploration of how women across generations contend with their own socialization.” Find out how to purchase tickets.

The film was selected as the opening film for the Special Presentations section at TIFF (Lady Bird had this slot last year). Although the film wasn't officially a Humber endeavor, Lara edited the film, had grads as assistant editors and was able to screen a rough cut of the film to her entire cohort from last year, an amazing experience for our students!
