Walking Together to Support FNMI Student Success

This series of three archived webinars supports exploration and implementation of the digital resource Walking Together and is intended to promote further dialogue and deepen understanding of FNMI culture and perspectives. Carla Badger shares from her unique perspective as a First Nation woman and also one of the Walking Together resource contributors/creators, insights into both content and process for using this digital resource in the classroom.

  • Session 1: FNMI Worldviews. This webinar explores the questions: Who are the FNMI People? Why do we use the term FNMI and not the terms Aboriginal or Native? What is the FNMI Worldview? How can this knowledge be infused into teaching practice for the benefit of all learners in your school/classroom context?
  • Session 2: Indigenous Pedagogy. First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) Peoples have been using holistic, tried and true approaches to education for generations. This webinar explores how the use of these strategies and approaches benefit all students.
  • Session 3: We are All Treaty People. This webinar explores the questions: Who are the treaty people? Why do these treaties still exist? Who are Métis people today and how do they fit in?

This resource is focused on professional development for teachers, districts and schools and supports a student/classroom connection and Alberta Education program or initiative.
