Chris Pheasant is from Wiikwemkoong First Nation and has dedicated his life to Indigenous Education. Over the course of his career, Chris has been a Guidance Counsellor, Teacher, Principal, and College Faculty member. Indigenous education is Biimaadiziwin, a way of living. Indigenous knowledge is ingrained in the language of the people and its relationship with the environment, the land, the water, the air, our spirit. It is a wholistic education that encompasses the four quadrants of being and understandings of natural law. In these and other ways Indigenous Education differs from Western Education and it is important to be aware of and to be respectful of these differences.
