Indigenous Educators Talk Indigenous Education – Being Indigenous To This Place with Dr. Angelina Weenie & Ida Swan
Teach For Canada invites you to join us for the second webinar in our speaker series Indigenous Educators Talk Indigenous Education. This series features experts, educators, and Knowledge Keepers sharing wise practices for incorporating Indigenous content in the classroom and building meaningful connections with Indigenous students.
We are honoured to be joined by two incredible educators from the First Nations University of Canada: Dr. Angelina Weenie, Associate Professor of Indigenous Education, and Ida Swan, Assistant Professor of Indigenous Education. Angelina is a Cree y dialect speaker from Sweetgrass First Nation and Ida is a Cree th dialect speaker from Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation. You can read more about the many incredible courses taught by Angelina here and by Ida here on the First Nations University of Canada website.
Angelina and Ida’s presentation will centre on infusing First Nations content into the curriculum in a variety of ways from learning about local protocol to perceiving students’ giftedness. They will share some of their strategies for incorporating Indigenous ways of knowing “no matter what we do”, including using an Indigenous Ways of Knowing education model developed by Angelina.
