Something from this class that has got me thinking is what we have learned about Treaty Education. I have learned so much this semester, and I know that what we have talked about should be basic knowledge, but in school I cannot remember a time that we learnt about Treaty Education. Now that I have been reflecting on my own school experience after learning about it, I have realized all of the things I have missed out on, and all of the things that my teachers could have and should have done. When I got to University I felt like I was so behind compared to some others because they knew so much more about Treaties, and Indigenous culture than I did. I literally had no idea that residential schools existed until this year of university because it was never talked about. At times I want to blame myself, but it was not my fault because if I was never told about it how would I be able to look into it more? I like that we are learning now what we can do as teachers to include Treaty Education into our classrooms. I feel like I have begun to understand and reveal the bias’s I have that were around me when I was growing up, and I have stated to break them down. I can relate to what Mike wrote about his first day at that small town school when he said he thought some negative things and immediately thought to himself “why would I think that?” It is difficult to admit it, but I think it is good that I am. I have learned to appreciate it when my thinking is being challenged, and that has happened a lot in this class. It used to make me uncomfortable, but now when we discuss a topic that is meant to make us feel uncomfortable I try to understand what we are talking about, and why it is important, and how it has affected me rather than getting angry at the subject.
