Braiding Histories Workshop

Lynn Wainwright and Leanne McColl hosted a two-part series inspired by the work of Dr. Susan Dion, exploring the notion of the "perfect stranger" with regards to Aboriginal people, culture, histories and world views, and explore how those barriers can be broken down in order for teachers to begin implementing the new curriculum, and including Aboriginal content, perspectives, and pedagogy in their classrooms.

Teachers engaged in critical self-reflection, an introduction to cedar (including creating a cedar bookmark), a look into Aboriginal history in Canada (including colonization, and Residential Schools), and (re)visited the First Peoples Principles of Learning.
