The Parenting Path 3 DVD Set
  • Includes all 3 Parenting Path DVD's:
    The Parenting Path
    Our Stories: By First Nations Teen Parents
    The Parenting Path: Parenting Your Young Teen

    THE PARENTING PATH:
    "The Parenting Path” DVD looks at Nuu-Chal-Nulth First Nations traditional culture as it relates to parenting and how the traditional ways are in harmony with modern research on parenting practices and optimal child development. It explores these themes from the perspective of today’s families and how they are engaged in using the traditional beliefs, values and practices in raising their children. The DVD can be used as a discussion starter for drop-in parent group programs and as a complement to many evidence-based structured programs. “The Parenting Path” can also be used within the education system including at the post-secondary level. The DVD runs 45 minutes and has easy scene selection access.

    OUR STORIES: BY FIRST NATIONS TEEN PARENTS:
    When Nickie Watts was 15 years old and pregnant, she really wanted to hear first hand from other First Nation teen parents what the journey into teenage parenthood had been like for them. The media –movies, TV and Internet all seemed to glamorize teen pregnancy and didn’t reflect her reality. There certainly were no resources that she knew of that portrayed the lives of First Nations teens who also happened to be parents. A few years into parenting, Nicki approached co-producer Kerry Roberson (The Parenting Path) and shared her vision and the need for this resource for pregnant First Nation teens. The result is this film telling Nickie’s story and the story of other FN teen Moms and Dads. Engaging, heart warming, sometimes heart-breaking, and always hopeful–the film is both a documentary and educational resource, powerfully telling the stories through the teens’ own voices. This DVD runs one hour in length and has easy scene selection access.

    THE PARENTING PATH: PARENTING YOUR YOUNG TEEN:
    "The Parenting Path: Parenting Your Young Teen" is a unique and encouraging resource for parents who will soon be raising teens or who are now raising young teens. The film presents modern families -parents, grandparents and teens. The film presents modern families ways of the Nuu Chah Nulth First Nations and how those traditions are shaping their parenting today. The film is true to life - it presents the real challenges of parenting in today's world, but it is also filled with hope, humour and the joy of raising young people.

    The parenting traditions and wisdom of the Nuu Chah Nulth peoples have been practised and passed down from time immemorial, from ?iikmuut. These practices nurtured respectful, capable, responsible and compassionate young people. Current research is also presented in the film that affirms that these traditional practices remain optimal for the healthy development of young people today.

    "The Parenting Path: Parenting Your Young Teen" is most applicable for parents of children aged 11 to 15 years. It can be used as a discussion starter for drop-in parent groups, as a complement for many structured evidence-based programs and for introducing Nuu CChah Nulth culture within school and community groups. The DVD runs 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards
Size: 15 cm W X 29 cm H
  • 25 Double-sided Interconnecting Cards, 6" x 9"

    The word Yoga comes from Sanskrit and means to unite, to bring together, to connect.The Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards connect the ancient practice of yoga with Indigenous culture. These cards celebrate connection as they invite all of us to honour our connection to each other, to our animal friends, to nature and spirit and to this amazing planet we all share. - Kathy Beliveau

    The Yoga Practice:
    Choose an individual card, or one of each colour to create a sequence, or several cards at once for a longer yoga practice. A practice with children may include making sounds. Invite the children to hoot like an owl or caw like a raven or growl like a bear!

    The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a yoga practice:
    4 Green Opening Breath cards
    8 Yellow Warm-up Pose cards
    8 Purple Active Pose cards
    4 Blue Closing Pose cards
    ~Kathy Beliveau

    The Reflective Practice:
    The reflective practice follows the Seven Sacred Teachings and incorporates Indigenous values. Our intention is to invite you to use one or more of these reflections to deepen your yoga experience either before, during, or after your practice. Choose a single card to respond to by yourself, with a friend, in a sharing circle or as a guide for journal writing.

    The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a reflective practice:
    8 Yellow Respect cards
    Focus on respect and love to the world around us
    4 Green Witness cards
    Focus on humility, courage and interconnectedness
    4 Blue Gratitude cards
    Focus on the wisdom that surrounds us
    8 Purple Connected cards
    Focus on truth and honesty in all living beings

War Dance
  • The film centers on three children - Nancy, a 13-year-old choir singer; Rose, a 14-year-old dancer; and Dominic, a 14-year-old xylophone player. They are members of the Acholi ethnic group, living in the remote northern Uganda refugee camp of Patongo, which is under military protection from the Lord's Resistance Army, a terrorist group that has been rebelling against the government for the past two decades. In 2005, the camp's primary school won its regional music competition and headed to Kampala to participate in the annual National Music Competition. War/Dance focuses on three of the eight categories: Western choral performance, instrumental music, and traditional dance, where the students perform the Bwola, the dance of the Acholi. Over the course of three months, the film's creative team observes the three youngsters as they prepare for the event and gain their confidence enough to have them discuss the horrors they have experienced and express their individual fears, hopes, and dreams.
