Course Description: This course focuses on exploring, experiencing, and reflecting upon the transformative effect of Aboriginal community engagement on schools, early childhood education settings, curriculum, and pedagogy. Students learn by participating in local Aboriginal cultural and social activities and explore how local Aboriginal ways of knowing, doing, and being reflects the diversity, vibrancy, and resilience of Aboriginal peoples and cultures. They consider the role of community cultural wealth in developing and designing culturally responsive relationships-focused schooling to "close the gap" between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities. Students critically analyze diverse representations and deficit discourses about Aboriginal people, culture, and communities in the project of developing their activist professional identity to transform teaching, learning, schools, and early childhood education settings in socially just ways.
