Building Our Bundles Pilot Project

Building our Bundles is an education research project that encourages relational cyclical learning between educators and learners as they explore Anishinaabe Ikwe lives from the 1930’s -2017. The purpose of this project is to create Indigenous-informed learning material for educators and students with a focus on Ojibwe women from the Robinson Superior region. Storytelling is fundamental for transmitting knowledge, culture, and language for future generations to learn, create meaningful engagements, and honour their ancestors. As such, storytelling is the central method in the research and learning process. The research has yielded a wealth of knowledge directly from Anishinaabe women. The overarching theme is re-stor(y)ing Indigenous womanhood by reclaiming our stories by honouring self-determined representations and identities. This knowledge will be transmitted to educators and learners using contemporary mediums such as digital storytelling, children’s storybooks, digital grandmother turtle pedagogy, and Anishinaabe woodland art. Building our Bundles was presented at the Ontario Education Research Symposium, and recently, has been successfully accepted to present at 44th Annual Research on Women and Education Fall 2018 Conference in San Antonio, Texas.
