Description

 

Resurgence is an inspiring collection of contemporary Indigenous poetry, art, and narratives that guides teachers in bridging existing K–12 curricula with Indigenous voices and pedagogies. Walk with us along the footbridge which seeks to:

  • engage tensions
  • connect peoples and places
  • link truth and reconciliation as ongoing processes
  • symbolize the risk and urgency of this work for both Indigenous and settler educators
  • highlight the importance of balance, both of ideas and within ourselves

Through critical engagement with the texts, experienced educators Christine M’Lot and Katya Adamov Ferguson support readers in discovering Indigenous narratives and perspectives, using Indigenous works in their classrooms, and creating more equitable and sustainable teaching practices.

In this resource, you will find

  • diverse Indigenous voices, perspectives, and art forms from all across Turtle Island
  • valuable concepts and methods that can be applied to the classroom and beyond
  • practical action steps and resources for educators, parents, librarians, and administrators

Use this book as a springboard for your own learning journey or as a lively prompt for dialogue within your professional learning community.
