Across Canada, teachers unfamiliar with Aboriginal approaches to learning are seeking ways to respectfully weave Aboriginal content into their lessons. This book introduces an indigenist approach to education. It recounts how pre-service teachers immersed in a crosscultural course in British Columbia began to practise Indigenous ways of knowing. Working alongside Indigenous wisdom keepers, they transformed earth fibres into a mural and, in the process, their own ideas about learning and teaching. By revealing how they worked to integrate Indigenous ways of knowing into their practice, this book opens a path for teachers to nurture indigenist crosscultural understanding in their classrooms.Subject(s): Canada | Multicultural education | Teaching | Critical pedagogy | Indigenous peoples--Social life and customs--Study and teaching | Indigenous peoples--Education | British Columbia | Culturally relevant pedagogyOriginal Publisher: [S.l.], UBC PressLanguage(s): English
