One of the main objectives about learning a new language is learning about the culture behind it. Our classes are doors to different worlds, and the more we learn about other cultures the more we learn about ourselves. How can we include in our classes different indigenous perspectives? How can we bring together two different worlds? And how can we honor and acknowledge the we teach on the shared, unceded, traditional territory of the Katzie, Semiahmoo and Kwantlen Nations?
All Grades K-12
