I was born in Kampala Uganda, grew up for most of my life in Edmonton, worked and lived in Japan for six years and am a Canadian of East Indian descent. As such, I am well versed in different cultural perspectives. Mine has been a personal journey of discovery about Indigenous ways of knowing. I belong to the Indigenous Student Leadership group at Centre High Campus. From the TQS we are required to apply foundational knowledge about First Nations, Metis and Inuit. From the Math Program of Studies the Number topic states "Develop number sense and critical thinking skills" where students are expected to "Analyze puzzles and games that involve numerical reasoning, using problem-solving strategies". From both of these documents I decided a way to authentically honour Indigenous ways of knowing was to engage students in collaboratively exploring, sharing and experiencing Indigenous games.I invite you to participate in experiences that will support you in building capacity to incorporate authentic Indigenous experiences in your classrooms.
