Title:
Indigenous Ways of Knowing
Topic:
Education for Reconciliation
Summary:
This workshop is designed to be an introduction to some basic First Nations, Métis and Inuit worldviews, cultural beliefs and values. It is neither a comprehensive nor exhaustive exploration of Indigenous ways of knowing, but rather a series of focused conversation starters for groups of educators engaged in reconciliation. The foundational knowledge activities are to support educators through the concepts of reconciliation as part of ongoing professional learning. The intent is to build awareness and curiosity in teachers to explore more on their own. Worldviews and Ways of Knowing are like stones thrown into the water from which other circles grow. Learning about the traditional and contemporary experiences unique to First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples helps to gain understanding and appreciation.
