IISAAK OLAM provides 4 different types of retreats, ranging from a weekend to several months. All retreats provide an introduction to Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCAs, aka Tribal Parks), and longer retreats and residencies provide an immersive experience within Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks and training on how to support IPCAs. Participants learn about protocol, ceremony, the Origin Story of Canada, and have a chance to decolonize some of the unconscious ways of thinking about the way we connect to our environment.
Local food including wild game and fish are served to guests, and participants have an opportunity to build new friendships and community around shared values in ethical space.
