This resource aims to provide a brief background on the impacts of colonialism and how it has impacted Indigenous Peoples and their Ways of Knowing in the hopes of helping educators become aware of how best to move forward to improve education outcomes for all. Also, this resource will provide tips and strategies on how to avoid essentialization (treating all Indigenous Peoples and their knowledge as the same) and appropriation, followed by examples of how to bring Indigenous Knowledge into the Science curriculum in an authentic and respectful way. This resource is not all encompassing, but will provide a starting off point for educators in Science.
