Prerequisite/Corequisite: The following courses must be completed previously: FPST 210; ILBE 301. Enrolment in the Microprogram in Indigenous Land-Based Education is required. If prerequisites are not satisfied, permission of the School is required.
Description: In this experiential course, students engage in seasonal immersive land-based activities in the community of Kahnawake as well as classroom-based discussions via sharing circles, presentations by Indigenous knowledge holders, and other experiential classroom methods. Students build awareness and reconnection to the land drawing from Rotinonhsión:ni knowledge systems such as the Creation Story and the Ohénton Karihwatehkwken and other Indigenous epistemologies as they relate to Indigenous land-based education. Students examine land as learning space, variations of Indigenous land-based systems, and examine how fostering land-based pedagogies can promote collective well-being and self-sufficiency.
