Learning to Indigenize: Kwantlen First Nation and the Maple Ridge Environmental School Project ( es.sd42.ca )
Imagine “schooling” without walls, a “community of learners” who participate in a variety of settings and activities, engage in hands-on, real lived experiences. The land, its histories and knowledges, becomes a place for learning: respect; the landscape, plants and animals; the language and stories of the land; Katzie and Kwantlen First Nations; and change. Our story is woven into the stories of past, present and future, allowing learners to engage in many learning possibilities.
