First Nations schools across southern Saskatchewan are collaborating on new ways to engage students outside of the classroom and on the land.
Earlier this month students and teachers within the Treaty 4 Education Alliance met in Fort Qu’Appelle, Sask., to share the land-based education programs they’re implementing.
People of all ages perused vivid displays depicting everything from children skinning rabbits to communities building a greenhouse in hopes of inspiring more on the land learning down the road.
The event was organized by Learning the Land, a program created by the Nature Conservancy of Canada and the Treaty 4 Education Alliance. It combines Indigenous culture and teachings with scientific knowledge about conservation.
