Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Teachings

“Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing are holistic and based on local conditions which reflect the inter-relationships between people, animals, plants, and everything that exists in the ecosystem – including those things seen and unseen”

– Chiefs of Ontario, 2012.

The model above was designed by Brown and Brown (2009) to illustrate the circular process of understanding the world around us, sharing this understanding, and contributing to the knowledge and health of all by cultivating universal stewardship to promote biodiversity and sustainability.

Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) was established to address the historical injustices and harms caused by Canada’s residential school system, particularly against Indigenous children and their communities. The TRC released a report in 2015 that included 94 Calls to Action aimed at redressing the legacy of residential schools and advancing the process of reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. These Calls to Action cover a wide range of areas, including education, health, justice, culture, and more.
