- When they are working together to establish a relationship and understanding of their land and culture
- Learning through living in the area in which they are studying
- Studying the land through living on the land rather then just learning about it through books
- Listening to the information that the elders offered
- Using their language and establishing words again through language loss
I think through studying who you are and where you are is best done through living experiences, through talking and through indigenous ways of knowing. Not by sitting in a classroom and reading books and articles but by going out and being in the environment and that place, and providing opportunities to experience these places and who each person is. I think too acknowledging every aspect of the place, and what you see and hear while being in that place is a great way to learn about what it has to offer. I also think having people who have the knowledge to teach my students in a calm and inviting way is more beneficial then me standing up at the front and telling them all the information that I have on a specific place or topic.
