Culturally restorative practice is one of the cornerstones for the rebuilding of a Nation. Culturally restorative practices require organizations, communities, families, and individuals to come to understand their unique cultural teachings and how this knowledge can create their own standards of practice.

The Institute for Culturally Restorative Practices believes "the greater the application of cultural attachment strategies the greater the response to cultural restoration processes within a First Nation community" Simard, 2008.
