ABOR-1070Land-based Learning 1

The Fall land-based program offers experiential learning and land-based experiences in Anishinaabe teachings through pedagogy. First year students gain an opportunity to learn authentic life skills and ancestral teachings of the Anishinaabe Language and Culture while synthesizing knowledge, skills and abilities. The land-based immersion program offers students teachings from Ojibwe elders, cultural and Indigenous educators. The land-based philosophy is based on a "good way of life" through sacred teachings, ceremonies and songs. The seasonal Indigenous teachings have been passed down from generation to generation. Natural law and traditional teachings incorporate how to live off the land, care and protect Mother Earth. Students learn about the sacredness of Mother Earth, fauna and flora, and the elements - air, water, fire and earth. Students are immersed in the Ojibwe traditional and contemporary worldview of the fall season in holistic teachings and activities. Survival and social skills are embedded in the topics covered - e.g. fishing, hunting, and harvesting medicines and food. Students participate in the activities and seasonal protocols applicable to Fall.
