17
Learning How to Learn
  • Three Symbol systems
  • Interact with
  • Four environments
  • Physical, Human, Spiritual and Self
  • Cyber Space presents incredible opportunities
    for cultural inclusion

18
Principles of Cultural Inclusion
  • Must be Holistic
  • Must contribute to health of student, family and
    community
  • Must include knowledge of intergenerational roles
    and responsibilities
  • Must respect role of Indigenous knowledge
  • Must be embedded in history and story

19
Principles of Cultural Inclusion
  • Must create a strong identity
  • Must recognize the sacredness of Proprietary
    Aboriginal knowledge that can only be shared with
    permission and protocol

20
Cultural Inclusion Must Recognize
  • Indigenous Voice
  • Indigenous Language
  • Indigenous Mathematics
  • Indigenous History
  • Indigenous Diversity
  • Indigenous Protocols
  • Relationship with Land (land based learning)

21
Practical Considerations
  • Racism affects educational outcomes
  • Native programs should not be marginalized
  • Indigenous knowledge should be fully validated
    and respected in the core curriculum
  • Difficult to maintain cultural inclusion

22
Culture is an Infinite Horizon
  • Race is a finite box that limit potential
  • A cultural definition of self provides our
    children with Infinite Potential and learning
    opportunity
  • Race limits our children to the prison of a
    falsely defined self.

23
Closing Comment
  • We must educate the hearts as well as the minds
    of our future generations through an ongoing
    investigation of physical and spiritual reality
    that educates their whole self.
  • For it is in the heart that the root of all
    learning thrives and it is this root that gives
    life and energy to each students being and
    enables expression of the beauty, accomplishments
    and advancement of human civilization though the
    process of education and the acquisition of
    learning
