Weaving Worlds: Enhancing the Learning of Aboriginal Students (2008)

This presentation is part of the Minerva Lecture Series, an initiative of the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL). The author is a member of the Lil’wat First Nation and holds the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Knowledge and Learning at the University of Victoria in British Columbia.

The author notes that in Western popular culture, the dominant storyline used to describe First Nations communities is often one that emphasizes loss and self-destruction. But there is another storyline, not told as often, about First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities where people maintain their values and traditions.

The author says those two storylines are also found in education. The author explores the mechanisms that can enhance the learning of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students by looking at what learners of all ages have told her they need for successful learning and outlining the needs that must be met by parents, teachers and members of the community.
