Lessons From Beyond is a comprehensive digital resource that engages students in learning about the mysteries of the cosmos through Indigenous knowledge systems. The ongoing impacts of colonization have led to the destruction and fragmentation of Indigenous knowledge systems, methodologies, pedagogies, and epistemologies. As a result, First Nations, Metis and Inuit Education Association of Ontario has reached out across the globe and created a unique collaborative network of Indigenous educators, Elders, academics, and scientists from across North America as well as New Zealand, and including a partnership with NASA. This resource works from the understanding that Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Western science can reflect, resonate with, and reinforce one another, affirming each other as valid, valuable, and vital. Building on the work of the Indigenous Knowledge and Mathematics Community of Practice, led by the FNMIEAO, this resource aims to revitalize Indigenous Knowledge systems in order to advance all of society in the fields of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). During this webinar, we will provide an overview of the resource as well as share tips and strategies on how to use it in the classroom.
