The Ceremony and Transitions research project explored culture-based wise practices of gender-based violence prevention with four Indigenous partner communities across Ontario. Through this research, we identified two foundational common understandings of culture-based violence prevention: first, the importance of embodying and ‘living out’ one’s culture, and second, the implementation of Indigenous pedagogies and their connection to successful violence prevention efforts.
