Walking the Path


Walking the Path is designed to teach Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal about the history, beliefs, and cultural traditions of Aboriginal people.  The Walking the Path initiative was developed and supported by the Ontario Provincial Police using Anishnawbe cultural teachings as a foundation to provide young people with the insight into Aboriginal Culture and for Aboriginal youth in particular, a way to instil pride in who they are and where they come from. 


Walking the Path builds on the belief that people who have the self-respect and self-confidence to function independently are better prepared to cope with negative influences or peer pressure.  Individuals who feel good about themselves are much more likely to respect others as well as the rules and laws of their communities.  A positive self-image is essential for a person to function as a responsible and contributing member of society.


Through different modules, Waking the Path touches on empowerment strategies; promotes self-concept, self-esteem, and respect for others; and deals with issues such as healing from trauma, abuse and racism, and combating stereotypes, prejudices and biases.
