Indigenizing science curriculum with an eye to place and authentic experience
This applied project represents an attempt by the author to find an answer to two questions. First, what are the Indigenous knowledge-forms, appropriate to place, available to give to the next generation? Second, how can these teachings be transmitted in a science classroom in a way that honors both the traditions of science and Indigenous knowledge? This project is a curriculum (in the sense of Currere) that promotes a reconciliation between a scientific world-view and traditional wisdom-in-action.
