Lessons from the Earth and Beyond – Learning from the Stars

Resource launch from FNMIEAO – Lessons from the Earth and Beyond – submitted by Janice Williams

Together Sandra Indian (Ojibways of Onigaming) and Jodie Williams (Co-Chair of FNMIEAO) will provide teachers with an over of the new resource Lessons From Beyond.  During this webinar, they will also share tips and strategies on how to use it in the classroom.

Lessons From Beyond is a comprehensive digital resource that engages students into learning about the mysteries of the cosmos through Indigenous knowledge systems. The ongoing impacts of colonization have led to the destruction and fragmentation of Indigenous knowledge systems, methodologies, pedagogies, and epistemologies. This resource is based on a unique collaborative network of Indigenous educators, Elders, academics, and scientists that includes: Anishinaabek, Cree, Kanyenʼkehá꞉ka, Diné, Yaqui, Maori (New Zealand) as well as a partnership with NASA. This resource works from the understanding that Indigenous knowledge systems and Western science can reflect, resonate with, and reinforce one another, affirming each other as valid, valuable, and vital. This new learning provides an opportunity to re-center Indigenous knowledge systems in order to advance all of society in the fields of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).Meet the content contributors from around the world:
