Here is some info on my inquiry project for my seminar class:
Inquiry question: As a non-Indigenous person, how can I continue to build my own relationship with Indigenous ways of knowing and being so that I can bring this learning to my teaching practice in an authentic way?
- What are some Indigenous perspectives on how, where and with whom teaching and learning take place?
- What are some Indigenous perspectives on what it means to build authentic relationships?
- What is the difference between incorporating Indigenous content and Indigenous ways of knowing and being into the K-12 system and should I be incorporating one or the other or both? How do I incorporate Indigenous knowledge in an authentic way so I am doing more than “ticking a box?”
- How does “Indigenizing” our education system benefit both Indigenous and non-Indigenous learners?
