Type E: Indigenous Content - Land Relations

Outdoor Recreation 1150 Land Relations
Through a respectful weaving of Indigenous and mainstream ways of knowing, we examine self, community and land relations. Together we explore (in theory and practice) the meaning of landscape as teacher, and from this place of understanding, examine how we might apply the best of human intention for socially just and ecologically vibrant communities. Learning circles and weekly fieldwork focus on the Thunder Bay region. Emphasis is placed on safety gained through awareness, ability to read the dynamic language of the land via the regional wildlife, ecological principles and indicators, heritage species, cultural connections, and the role of ceremony in developing ecological intelligence.
