Early in 2007, following a competition for projects related to Aboriginal Learning, a research project was awarded to the Committee by the Canadian Council on Learning. The research project is designed to address: What is a First Nations perspective [of learning Indigenous science from Place] for the purposes of curriculum development in Saskatchewan? What is a Métis perspective [of learning Indigenous science from Place] for the purposes of curriculum development in Saskatchewan? How can learning from Place help to create a foundation for a science curriculum that is contextualized to Place and to the people of the Place? How can these perspectives and learning from Place inform teachers of the processes and content needed in science curriculum? What supports or processes are needed for educators and systems to engage authentically in Indigenous science?

Nunavut Sivuniksavut: Bringing Inuit culture to the classroom

December 10, 2008
By Laura Eggertson

When Mishael Gordon arrived in Ottawa three years ago to attend the Nunavut Sivuniksavut Training Program, an innovative college program for Inuit youth, she wasn’t prepared for what she was about to learn.

The 22-year-old knew that the award-winning program had a unique curriculum that mixes traditional academics with life skills and courses on Inuit culture. She was also aware of the program’s success in preparing high-school grads for jobs in the Government of Nunavut, and the world at large. But she didn’t expect to learn so much about her own heritage. For instance, she had no idea that as part of the historic land claim agreement that created Nunavut in 1999, the Inuit had to sign over their Aboriginal land title.
