    A Conversation with Joy Gugeler & Stephanie Johnson

    In the show, Stephanie, Joy and Theo discuss teaching and storytelling in their classrooms, specifically developing approaches which respect Indigenous and settler ways of knowing.

Ideal partnerships integrate both knowledge systems, and employ two-eyed seeing.




    Included in the show are a performance by Lawrence Mitchell from Snaw'Naw'As First Nation, and an excerpt from We Are All Treaty People featuring Harold Johnson.
