Indigenous Cultural Exchange - FOAR100

The concepts of knowledge and knowledge systems are explored in this unit with a focus on how Indigenous populations understand themselves in the physical world and how this translates into social and cultural practice. Drawing upon the idea of situated knowledge this unit explores the learning that takes place in the process of engaged observation and practice in Indigenous contexts. Students will be introduced to the concept of Indigenous knowledges and Indigenous ways of knowing, doing and being. Students will also be active educators and draw on their own knowledges and share with other learners. This unit looks at knowledge in relation to land, water and sky, among many topics, and the way in which knowledge is applied in traditional and contemporary modes.
