Indigenous Community: Rekindling the Teachings of the Seventh Fire
April 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Indigenous Community explores how community is the foundation and lifeblood of Indigenous education as well as the path to sustainable ways of life. In the words of Greg Cajete, the author, What I want Indigenous readers to get is that, along with our efforts to revitalize culture and language, we must also revitalize and sustain our sense for community, because it is the context in which culture and language flourish. We must once again create a process for community leadership and develop toward this goal. We can develop ways to do this through a contemporary form of community-based education. For the non-Indigenous reader, I hope they will realize that community is indeed the medium and the message for contemporary efforts toward building sustainable community. Historically, Indigenous communities have reflected elegant and authentic forms of resilient sustainable community.
