Resurgence is the first book in The Footbridge Series. This series aims to bridge curricular outcomes with Indigenous-centered content and perspectives from across Turtle Island. Like a footbridge, this series is intended to provide a path between Indigenous worldviews and the classroom, engaging differences, include tensions, and highlight the importance of balance, all while helping teachers integrate Indigenous perspectives into multiple disciplines within the K–12 education system.
