Teaching towards reciprocity and identity-affirming classrooms: Akinoomaagzid, Indigenous ways of knowing and Anishinaabemowin
Two educators will share their story using the Akinoomaagzid program developed in partnership with the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation to reconnect students to the land, their language and Indigenous ways of knowing. This workshop will model how to actionize reciprocal teaching practices, identity-affirming spaces and ideas around reciprocity. The focus will be Indigenous innovations and connections to Anishinaabemowin and explore Indigenous ways of knowing. Participants will build connections to the land which will strengthen their understanding of Indigenous worldviews.
