Many Indigenous students in Canada experience science lessons as counterintuitive, if not outright alienating. It’s high time we incorporated First Nation, Inuit, and Métis perspectives on the natural world into mainstream K–12 science. Researcher Jane Cooper explains the educational landscape, current initiatives, the role of Elders and Knowledge Keepers, and what it will take to make it happen. The full story: Curriculum and Reconciliation: Introducing Indigenous Perspectives into K–12 Science (impact paper, out September 2020). Discover more Indigenous and Northern studies projects and access all our research at conferenceboard.ca.
