Queering land-based education
with Dr. Alex Wilson

Land-based education has become increasingly popular across First Nations and other school systems in Canada. The shift from classroom-based teaching to land-based approaches has supported Indigenous language and cultural revitalization. But, how can we ensure that land-based education does not replicate colonial structures and practices?  This presentation focuses on the philosophical and pedagogical praxis of queering land-based education as an opportunity for educators to “queer” both pedagogy and essentialist understandings of nature and cosmology.  We focus on the importance of Indigenous knowledge and relationships with water, land, and place in relation to the process of disrupting and reorienting our education systems. 

Dr. Linda Manyguns, Associate Vice-president, Indigenization and decolonization is bringing introductions.
