The Present and Future of Land-based Education in Treaty #3
In this paper, we examine the current state of land-based education within Treaty #3 and look to potential models for strengthening and building upon current practices. This paper is organized around four central questions:
1. Where are we now?
2. What characterizes Anishinaabe land-based education?
3. Why is land-based education important now?
4. Where do we want to go?
By reflecting on and responding to these questions, we hope to begin a discussion about how land-based pedagogies rooted in Anishinaabe knowledge can improve and strengthen the educational outcomes for all students within Treaty #3.
