Julie shares her perspective of bringing the Ktunaxa Nation values to the forefront of the model development and how she has supported the work. Jennifer shares her perspective as a guardianship worker and current Supervisor around the significant changes in the KKCFS case management model to support the children in the case system, focusing on network building, cultural connections and the importance of all children understanding their story as part of the Truth and Reconciliation calls to action.
