There are many ways to ethically and responsibly bring Indigenous knowledges into our curricula. At the same time, we may not know where to start. Educators across Canada are stepping up to incorporate Indigenous knowledges and worldviews in their classrooms in ways that enrich curriculum and facilitate dialogue, understanding, and collective and individual awareness.
This week, the Teaching and Curriculum Development Centre (TCDC), will launch a two part series to discuss what practicing reconciliation looks like in the field of education. Part one involves discussions based on the course material offered through University of British Columbia’s MOOC titled “Reconciliation Through Indigenous Education” and will be facilitated by Natalie Knight. Natalie is Yurok from northern California and Navajo from New Mexico, and works with TCDC as Indigenous Curriculum Specialist. Part two will be a four week silversmithing class, led by acclaimed Coast Salish artist and instructor of Langara’s unique Reconciliation Carving Series, Aaron Nelson Moody.
