I am a Kind Man embraces the Seven Grandfather Teachings which show us how to live in harmony with Creation through wisdom, love, respect, bravery, honesty, humility and truth. The goal of I Am A Kind Man is to engage and educate men to speak out against abuse against Aboriginal women. By providing education and helping to identify the issues surrounding abuse against Aboriginal women, the program through cultural and hopes to inspire men to promote equality and get involved and stop abuse. Overall Goals To provide education for men and boys to address issues of abuse against women, to reestablish traditional responsibilities by acknowledging that our teachings have never tolerated violence and abuse towards women, To inspire men to engage other men to get involved and stop the abuse, to support Aboriginal men and boys who choose not to use violence. The OFIFC believes strongly that in order to eliminate Violence against Aboriginal Women and children, men must be healed. Violence against Aboriginal Women is not a womens issue-it is men who must step up and change their behaviour and encourage other men to do so as well. There will be group discussions and exercises that surround anger management, coping skills and maintaining a healthy & balanced life.
