Keynote Topic:

“Traditional Indigenous Knowledge: The Original “Alternative” Learning Model”

Keynote Summary:

Indigenous ways of knowing, researching, and education have been suppressed, ignored or ridiculed for centuries, and our world’s condition is paying the price. Many alternative education programs naturally have re-discovered portions of this approach to learning, but a more complete or more widespread application may be needed if we are to survive as a species. In this keynote, Four Arrows will offer a summary of the basic tenants of Indigenous education.
