In June 2019, Tuscany School presented a Blackfoot/ English opera and the students wrote, illustrated and published Blackfoot/English books to showcase their Blackfoot learning journey. Together with Elder Saa'kokoto who guided the journey, the designer, school administrator, and learning leaders will tell the story of the essence of this journey and the impact that this has had on pedagogy, school culture and relationships. With video clips of the opera and samples of the books to lift our stories, this presentation aims to inspire action in the collective work of education for reconciliation. We see this experience as a gift to share with the world so that educators and leaders can create their own meaningful action in their own contexts.
