Hotel rooms have been blocked for out-of-town participants. Call Wingate Hotel at 920-617-2000 to reserve a room and mention this training.
The training is open to those who identify as Indigenous. It is a 5-day training that was developed and being taught by two Native American women. Camie Goldhammer (Sisseton-Wahpeton) is a social worker and lactation counselor from Washington. Kimberly Moore-Salas (Navajo) is a nurse and lactation counselor from Arizona. The training was designed to help Native communities bring back the tradition of breastfeeding and make breastmilk babies’ first food again. Participants will learn about the biological process of breastfeeding along with counseling and assessment skills to help other women. In addition, participants will be able to discuss the impacts that colonization had on breastfeeding and ways to mend or heal.
Lunch will be offered all five days. Training goes from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM each day.
