The Kenanaw program was created by Elders as a way to develop teachers in the North.
The Kenanaw Learning Model is an education system that served Aboriginal people well for generations throughout time and history. It is about identity, a place of belonging, community history, roles and responsibilities of generations of families and the process of handing down knowledge in a larger context, the community that supports and nourishes the heart, mind, body and spirit. For Ininiwak, the Cree, the education system was transmitted through the families and communities as represented in the Kenanaw Learning Model. https://www.ucn.ca/sites/academics/facultyeducation/programs/bacheloreducation/kenanowmodel/Pages/Kenanow-Model.aspx
