Learning Pathways - Indigenous Studies


This pathway is focused on exploring and understanding Indigenous environmental regimes and systems of knowledge. Understanding Indigenous peoples' environmental knowledge aids academic study by resituating the human in ecological terms and the non-human in ethical terms. Both Western and Indigenous environmental studies share an interest in sustaining resilient landscapes and this pathway will aid students in exploring the best practices of both systems of thought toward reaching this common goal.
