About This Event

This 3-day intense training is for individuals wanting to be certified as Facilitators in Fatherhood Is Sacred® (FIS) and Motherhood Is Sacred® (MIS) curriculum. The FIS & MIS curriculum provides individuals the knowledge and skills to implement a 12-week program that assists fathers, mothers, and families to fully realize their potential.

The curriculum offers participants the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of responsible fatherhood as reflected in Native American values and beliefs. There is an immediate need to bring men back to strengthening families— they are the greatest untapped resource. Fathers are the solution to the problems that face communities and must take the leading role in keeping their families together!

Fatherhood Is Sacred® and Motherhood Is Sacred® Certified Facilitators can now earn college credit and work towards a Bachelor Degree from Wilkes University with special tuition.

”I totally love the program of Motherhood is Sacred and Fatherhood is Sacred.  The sessions are true to all native people and the way we were brought up.  Several of the sessions are the way I was taught as a child and have taught & passed down to my children, nieces, nephews, and family members.  This program needs to be offered throughout our communities, and in schools to our students.    

I love how it is non–judgmental and open, makes you feel welcomed and willing to open up.”
