Learning From Place

Throughout the narrative we see decolonization because they mention the loss of language and culture. This loss has been occurring for many generations. They emphasize the relationship between the elders, and the younger generation because the elders have a huge impact when it comes to the relationship with the land, as well as the history. There is great importance for the relationship between the youth and the elders to keep their culture alive. I would love to adapt these things into my classroom, and I am making it mandatory for myself to bring an elder into my class at least once a year just so that the students are able to have that experience. I never had that experience when I was younger, and I feel like I am at a loss because of it which is why I find that aspect so important.

  1. Carley,
    I enjoyed reading your blog post. I also will bring an elder into my classroom each year. I think it is very important for students to connect to our land in that way and the elders provide so much knowledge and experience. Good post 🙂
