The Rainy River District School Board and Seven Generations Education Institute have partnered to support Anishinaabemowin programming in schools. Along with programming within the elementary and secondary schools, we are fortunate to be partnered with preschool settings in the district where Anishinaabemowin is encouraged and supported.
Land based pedagogy increases experiential learning and emphasizes the interconnectedness of Anishinaabe language, culture, and land which is highly valued in the classroom. The use of technology in the Anishinaabemowin program enriches students’ 21st Century skills and allows them to explore further language learning.
This programming is supported by language speakers, knowledge keepers, and elders who come into the classrooms and offer learning experiences. This supports students, teachers, and families in their journey of learning and speaking Anishinaabemowin which is the goal of the Anishinaabemodaa initiative.
Additionally we are able to offer virtual learning opportunities for the public which focus on Anishinaabe language, teachings, and culture. These sessions are recorded and offered to the public. Some session recordings are not offered on this public platform, but can be accessed if requested. Please contact us if you would like to access these recordings.
