                                    I am a?Kind Man was created with the involvement of many generous people?
                                    who have made the choice to work to end violence against Indigenous women.

                                  • Wisdom is to acknowledge and practice values that are respectful of men and women.

                                    “It is important to honour the missing and murdered women. It is unacceptable to marginalize these women. The Creator did not create garbage. He created beauty.” Elder Dan Smoke

                                  • Sweetgrass teaches us to be kind

                                    It teaches us as young people that when we braid things together in a balanced way we have strength.

                                  • In Indigenous society the drum is a sacred circle

                                    The circle symbolizes the cycles within nature, which stands for respect, equality, inclusiveness and the continual flow of life.

                                  • To live with love is to show kindness and respect to others.

                                    You must learn to love and be at peace with yourself. Once you love yourself then you will be able to love others.

                                  KIZHAAY ANISHINAABE NIIN

                                  Is Anishinaabemowin (Ojibway language) for “I am a kind man”, this phrase guides us in how to engage men to take action to end violence against Indigenous women.

                                  AN INDIGENOUS APPROACH TO HEALING

                                  I am a Kind Man is?guided?by?an Indigenous approach to healing that recognizes the distinct histories, unique cultures, and shared traumas of all Indigenous people negatively?impacted?by colonization. Our approach to healing is wholisitic, taking into account all aspects of creation.

                                  ABOUT I AM A KIND MAN

                                  I am a Kind Man engages Indigenous men by raising?awareness and an understanding of the causes of?violence against women. ?It supports?Indigenous men to come?together to end violence. It is designed to offer Indigenous men a safe place to understand their roles and responsibilities in ending violence.?

                                  SEVEN GRANDFATHER TEACHINGS

                                  This Kizhaay Anishinaabe Niin resource is guided by the Seven Grandfather Teachings and?provides programming for Indigenous men who are committed to ending violence.

                                  7 GRANDFATHER TEACHINGS

                                  about us

                                  All human beings deserve to live a life free from violence. Unfortunately, far too many people will experience violence in their life time. In Indigenous communities, across Canada, violence against Indigenous women has become normalized but occurs in epidemic proportions. Ending violence against Indigenous women requires the commitment of all of us, especially men to end violence in Canada.?

                                  We acknowledge patriarchy – where male dominance and male power privileges men over women – as an important cause of violence against women. ?We also see the strong connection between colonization and violence against Indigenous women. Many non-Indigenous anti-violence movements do not talk about this connection. Understanding violence against Indigenous women means dispelling the view that patriarchy is the sole and/or dominant causing factor in violence against women.

                                  The statistics below show the number of Indigenous women who are affected by violence in Canada in relation to non-Indigneous women.?

                                  ?

                                  The Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC), through the Indigenous Family Healing Joint Steering Committee (1993), defines violence as:

                                  “Consequent to colonization, forced assimilation, and cultural genocide, the learned negative, cumulative, multi-generational actions, values, beliefs, attitudes and behavioural patterns practiced by one or more people that weaken or destroy the harmony and well-being of an Indigenous individual, family, extended family, community or nationhood.”

                                  The statistics to the right are from the 2014 RCMP Operational Review on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.?

                                  In 2014, the OFIFC responded to the RCMP Operational Review on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in Canada. Please see the news release and response by clicking below.?

                                  HEALING MEN

                                  The I am a Kind Man campaign does not privilege one man’s identity over another. The campaign is for all Indigenous men regardless of their skin colour, status, place of birth, where they were raised, or their nation.

                                  Activities

                                  I am a Kind Man utilizes activities and teachings based on the 7 Grandfather Teachings to help Indigenous men heal and to actively end violence in our communities.
                                  Culture based programming increases resilience by empowering men to acknowledge and resolve trauma, as it provides a venue for exploring historical traumas and how they are transmitted from generation?to?generation.?The goal of which is to improve men’s well-being and foster community wellness.

                                  Culture and Tradition

                                  As the original inhabitants of Turtle Island, Indigenous people have our own distinct history that existed far before the arrival of Europeans and other migrants to this land. Our stories carry our traditions and histories of our ancestors passed. The I am a Kind Man campaign encourages Indigenous men to seek their original teachings from their nation to guide them on their healing journey.

                                  Healing Ourselves

                                  I am a Kind Man encourages facilitators and participants to incorporate traditional knowledge, medicines, and ceremony throughout each session. These traditional teachings and practices support participants as they become self-aware about their roles and responsibilities to their families, themselves and their communities.

                                  20 years of Indigenous Healing and Wellness in Ontario

                                  Since inception in 1994 and over the course of 20 years of service delivery, the Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy (AHWS) has contributed to significant change in negative health outcomes and levels of family violence experienced within Indigenous families and communities in Ontario. The strategy finds its origins as a shared commitment between the Government of Ontario and First Nation, Metis and Indigenous partners working alongside of Indigenous communities in ending family violence, violence perpetrated against Indigenous women and children, and improving the general health and wellness of Indigenous people in Ontario. The Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy esteems Indigenous cultural approaches to program and service delivery and continues its ongoing commitment to end violence and improve overall health outcomes within Indigenous families and communities into the current day. The AHWS 20th Anniversary video commemorates the collective history, growth and accomplishments of the Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy in Ontario.

                                  TAKING ACTION

                                  The I am a Kind Man campaign is a step towards returning to our traditional teachings, respect for each other, and a chance for us to envision a world free of violence.

                                  Community Action

                                  I am a Kind Man is targeted at reaching?Indigenous men and youth.? In some communities, men will play the central role; in others, campaigns will be developed with both men and women taking leadership. Having activities jointly organized by men and women is a great way to model equal relationships and respect.

                                  Training

                                  The Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres provides training for?I am a Kind Man to facilitators selected and supported by their local communities.
