We have learned that the first edition of Natural Curiosity
begins to reflect Indigenous approaches to learning in significant ways. One Anishinaabe Elder – also a retired elementary school teacher – said, after reading the first edition, “I actually cried when I read it. I said to myself, they’re finally starting to get it!”
With support from TD Friends of the Environment, we have been inspired to create a second edition which highlights Indigenous perspectives to a greater and more meaningful extent. We invite educators to begin considering a journey into Environmental Inquiry that is increasingly informed by Indigenous knowledge. For more information please read our promotional package and let us know if you would like to help support this initiative by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
