I recently produced a film series titled “Critical Understandings of Land & Water: Unsettling Place at SFU” which aims to examine the praxis of land-based education. The film series is guided by Q’um Q’um Xiiem, Dr. Jo-ann Archibald’s Indigenous Storywork methodology (2008) to bring forward an important collection of stories on land based education in collaboration with respected Coast Salish Knowledge Holders and Simon Fraser University faculty. The film series will form the basis of a research informed massive open-online course (MOOC) on land based education in British Columbia that is currently in development. I raise my hands high in appreciation to the generous teachings shared by the respected Coast Salish Knowledge holders, leaders and faculty in the series and Simon Fraser University’s Indigenous Education Reconciliation Council, Equity Studies in Education Program, & Centre for Educational Excellence.
Viewers will be invited to watch all of the knowledge holder films on this page in Winter 2021, if agreeable to participating in a pre and post film on-line survey to support the development of the MOOC. This page will be updated regularly, I look forward to your participation in the surveys.
