Join us as we explore how to integrate traditional Indigenous Ways of Knowing in your classes. From demystifying treaties and common misconceptions to equipping teachers to see their classes as places and spaces to build reconciliation. Through the incorporation of online tools, resources, and video collaboration (ie. video conferencing, virtual field trips, etc.) classes will interact with elders, knowledge keepers, and chiefs from all around the world. Students and educators will gain a deeper understanding of Indigenous cultures, pressing global issues, from climate change to social inequities, encompassing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), from an Indigenous focal point.
