ABOUT THIS RESOURCE
This interdisciplinary resource brings forward a new approach to learning and reveals our intimate connection to the universe. The activities and content will show how Indigenous Knowledge systems can enhance and resonate with a wide range of disciplines that includes STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) fields. Classroom activities embedded throughout explore mathematical concepts connected to the Indigenous knowledge systems presented in this resource.
The inspiration for this resource came out of a camp that was held in April of 2019. Indigenous students from 3 school boards participated. Many of the contributors of this resource were also facilitators at this camp. The following documentary was produced to capture the learning and experiences for all who attended. This video also provides an overview of the significance and purpose for this resource.
