The Haudenosaunee Worldview
This multi-part workshop is the starting point for a learning journey. Participants are introduced to the original instructions given to the Haudenosaunee people, and gain an understanding of how they view the world.
The Maple Syrup Experience
This hands-on, interactive, outdoor workshop combines the traditional Haudenosaunee method of making maple syrup with stories, songs and teachings that connect to concepts of sustainability, stewardship, tradition and gratitude.
Making Traditional Water Drums
In this two day, immersive workshop, you will hand carve a traditional Haudenosaunee water drum using traditional tools and methods. While you work, you’ll share stories, songs and food over the fire with your fellow participants and instructors.
A Journey Begins workshops are:
- Interactive, engaging, inclusive and fun
- Connected to the curriculum, with individual learning outcomes identified

Christopher Stock’s teachings are rooted in Indigenous culture, history, and languages that have survived for generations. With over 30 years of experience working with learners of all ages, Chris has honed a unique teaching style that provides an interactive cultural experience, offering participants the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of indigenous ways of knowing and being.
The interactive, multimodal nature of your presentations were well-suited to our diverse population with varied learning styles. The combination of stories, visual props in the form of clothing and artwork, hands on props like drums and rattles, and of course the students’ participation in the songs and dances gained and maintained their attention and helped them to truly learn something from the presentations
