We envision creating pathways for educators and practitioners for wholistic professional development that is guided by the principles embedded in Indigegogy. Our vision is to honour the spirit, heart, intellect and physical elements of teaching, learning and in practice. We envision wholistic education and training that is grounded in our culture, traditions, anti-colonialism, decolonizing and Indigenizing knowledges. We envision pathways of unlearning and re-learning toward transformation, wholistic teaching and healing.
We strive towards supporting Mino-Bimaadiziwin (Ojibwe for the "way of a good life"), and Ka’nikonhriyohtshera (Mohawk for "fostering emergence of the good mind") using land-based education, traditional knowledge and teachings.
