First Nations, Métis and Inuit have diverse perspectives, cultures, traditions and ways of knowing. This webinar will provide educators with a general overview of some Indigenous world views, cultural beliefs and values. Educators will be encouraged to reflect on their own practices and ways they can make space for Indigenous ways of knowing within their own contexts.
This learning opportunity is being offered through a grant from Alberta Education.
Shannon LoutittShannon is a Div. 2 teacher on secondment from Fort McMurray Public School District. Shannon grew up in Fort McMurray learning about her Metis heritage and when she was 5 years old she said she wanted to be the first Native lady Prime Minister. Although that might not happen, she is excited to be working with the ATA on the Walking Together Project to help teachers learn more about the diverse cultures, histories, and contemporary realities of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
