The Association's Indigenous Education Committee is pleased to offer the final session in the Indigenous History Month speaker series. The Indigenous Education Committee is excited to learn from Wilson and Charlene Bearhead during this upcoming session.

Join authors and educators Wilson and Charlene Bearhead as they offer a personal tour of the Siha Tooskin Knows book series, guiding participants through the ways of knowing and being of an 11 year old Nakota boy.

Wilson and Charlene will share some key teachings that can help us all live together in a good way and offer ideas of how teachings from Siha Tooskin can be used by teachers as jumping off points to explore the ways of knowing and being of the original people where they are living, learning and teaching.
