Indigenous & Multicultural Enhancement Opportunities (IMEO)
DASCH’s commitment to Indigenous and Multicultural Enhancement Opportunities offers a transformative opportunity for both the people supported by DASCH and our staff.
By engaging in crafting, fishing, nature walks, participating in pow wows, and tending to the recreation of a new healing garden, DASCH community members can foster meaningful connections with their housemates, neighbours, and the wider community. These immersive experiences celebrate cultural diversity and nurture a deeper understanding and appreciation of one another’s backgrounds and traditions. With pride, the people in DASCH’s care and staff are also actively involved in traditional ceremonies and practices including, but not limited to:
- Sweat Lodge Ceremonies
- Drumming circles
- Medicine picking
- Language exposure
- Sun Dance Ceremonies
- Regalia making
- Cooking classes
- Traditional Henna Art
Through the Indigenous and Multicultural Enhancement Opportunities, residents are provided with unique opportunities to personally connect with Elders and other multicultural community leaders. This program nurtures an environment for people to connect with one another, offering a safe space for self-expression and a joyful atmosphere.
