This course will invite teachers to deepen their understanding of Indigenous histories, traditions, cultures, and world views to critically explore and transform current pedagogy and practice. As a learning community, we will journey through this course together as we unlearn and relearn the many ways of knowing and being and explore topics of identity, positionality, bias, colonization, treaties, and our relationship with the land. The course will support the implementation of the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report in our classrooms, schools, and district school boards.
