Exploring Ways of Knowing Among the Ojibwe

Posted: March 22, 2013

This award-winning cultural engagement and educational course will help students understand the concept of worldview while teaching them skills that deepen their cultural competency.

Through engagement with leading Ojibwe elders and educators, students will understand why the Ojibwe worldview has been in conflict with the Euro-American worldview during the past 300 years of conquest. Students will appreciate diversity, think more critically about their own history and culture, and identify values that shape their own worldviews. They will also practice skills of attentiveness, listening, observation, and reflection — all important in meaningful cross-cultural encounters.
