Teaching from Place: Land as an Educator

May 8, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This event is part of the 2023 Celebrate Learning Week, taking place from May 2–9, 2023.

Indigenous land is everywhere: beyond the city limits and within. There is immense power in the places where we live and learn. The land is one of our greatest and most abundant teaching partners. If you have ever been curious about land based education, join us for a discussion about land as a teacher and kin. This conversation will be deeply rooted in Indigenous sovereignty and LandBack as a framework of understanding relation to land within a settler-colonial context.
