Stories – Science

Sciences attempt to theorize and test theories about the world. Many of the stories in this category weave together Indigenous knowledge Western scientific knowledge to show the importance of both forms of knowledge to be able to effectively and accurately monitor, mitigate and restore damaged environments that have been impacted by human activity. These stories provide participants with tools, knowledge and resources to learn to observe and experience issues in the world around them and include examples of land-based learning, classroom learning and community-based programs. Several stories use Indigenous cultural examples to illustrate engineering and problem solving so the scientific learning is culturally significant. The stories are from the perspective of program leaders, Elders and participants sharing their reflections on the aims and successes of their programs.
