English Abstract

This research was funded by the Canadian Race Relations Foundation. The Report Highlights focus on the major issues that are covered in the report entitled Learning About Walking in Beauty: Placing Aboriginal Perspectives in Canadian Classrooms. It also presents a section describing CAAS’ “Future Directions and Proposals to Educators”. The author commences from the premise that Canada’s education system fails to acknowledge and understand indigenous knowledge and worldviews. As a result Walking Beauty takes on the challenge of recognising the current state of indigenous knowledge within the Canadian education system and it proposes initiatives that will allow for a more inclusive environment where schools present a shared vision and understanding of the land.
