Woot! Woot! 💖
He came to visit my class through his MFNERC work.
as reflective practitioners we learn from our experiences so that we can continue to do better
Teachers Pay Teachers can be very problematic
what was that word you used again - meaning painting everyone with the same brush?
Would you be able to provide a good example ?
the medicine wheel often is used in reference for all Indigenous Peoples
…. an appropriate example ….
We are all products of the learning system under which we learned, thus we frame our new approach under the parameters of an old structure.
well said Frances
Viviane we will get to some but when looking at resources we have to consider who's knowledge is being shared, who is sharing it (is it being used with permission or given directly from the elders and knowledge keepers).
Thank you for these wise words.
So true Shelley. Miigwetch
Well said Shelly!
Right and even when you do learn, you should still be bringing in the authentic voices.
Marsi for this discussion. Friendly reminder to all teachers – every board has an Indigenous Ed Lead or team of people to lean on. It’s very uncomfortable for us Leads when we walk into schools and must address such issues (cultural appropriation, Panindianisme, etc.) after the fact. Please reach out – we’re there to help and guide :)
We cannot see picutres on the shared screen
It was amazing to watch the students and how their perception of the sugar water was a gift from the earth vs a commodity to simply take
Better understanding of where food comes from, and the process it takes to get it from the land to their dinner table.
it also got to the idea of learning on the land and simply learning outside
As our good friend @JodyKohoko says, "Indigenous education is relational not transactional."
We'll be back at 11:05am!
JW - Are any of these ressources available in French? Can we switch the website from English to French?
I wish! It would be great to have it all translated but we have not had any funding to do so.
Meegwetch...hopefully in the near future…:)
This is all so fabulous! Thank you. Nakurmik.
so exciting and incredible!
I am going to learn so much this summer!
This resources is amazing! Excited to dig into it more and share with colleagues!
Can't believe you've managed to add even more to this resource! Thank you for sharing.
and this is where educators may need your support. If a teacher is expecting just a set of lessons around specific concept they may open this and not get it. It is with your support we hope they will see the opportunity to challenge their approach to the teaching of mathematics and how math can live in a much more wholistic setting. Not to mention it would hopefully spark some curiosity in students to wonder and think about the night sky.
I love this. Especially the building of curiosity in our students. I'm learning so much.
I have to go. Can I get the recordings for day 1 and 2 emailed to me please?
and what is key is that the traditional knowledge is being shared by authentic voices
William they will be posted on the MKN site
Deadly, thank you!
Thank you so much for all of this amazing work! I can't wait to investigate it deeply. I am wondering if we teach mathematics as relationships rather than skills then we may be supporting indigenous ways of knowing implicitly?
Thank you all very much for this resource.
Very grateful to the elders, caretakers as well as many people have carried their knowledge for myself and many other nonIndigenous folks. My gratefulness is heartfelt. Thank you very much for this incredible gift!
This is wonderful. Thank you
Penny Gordon (she/her)
Erik, agreed, Math should also be taught as relational, within math concepts and strands. Adding relations and contexts through Indigenous knowledge is even so much richer

I am so grateful to everyone involved in creating this incredible resource, and I'm excited to explore further and share with teachers. I also really appreciate the opportunity to hear all of the presenters who spoke and the opportunity to learn so much in a short time. Miigwetch!
