Land-Based Traditional Teaching
This event is open to all interested faculty, staff, students and community members.
In collaboration with the Elders, we will offer an opportunity for all interested to participate in land-based learning. Connection to the land is essential for Indigenous Peoples’ knowledge systems. Land-based practices, protocols and the relationship to Indigenous peoples’ identities and ways of life will be shared.
This session will start Monday evening on May 15th calling witnesses and feature two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) of learning on the land and concludes Thursday morning back on campus.
