The purpose of this virtual workshop is to introduce the integration of Indigenous Ways of Knowing in the context of Home Schooling. The presenter will provide an overview of Indigenous Education from an Indigenous lens and the essential curriculum elements and methods that can be incorporated at the K-12 level. This workshop will draw links to the National Centre for Collaboration on Indigenous Education (NCCIE) website and the wealth of resources, materials, lessons, activities, videos, stories, books, and articles the conference participants can use in their day-to-day practice. NCCIE is a national project between First Nations University of Canada and Trent University. Visit the website at: nccie.ca.
