dc.description.abstract Knowing Home weaves Indigenous perspectives, worldviews, and wisdom practices into the science curriculum. It provides a window into the scientific knowledge and technological innovations of the Indigenous peoples who live in Northwestern North America, thus providing numerous examples and cases for developing science lessons and curricula. Knowing Home shows how Indigenous perspectives can give insight and guidance as we attempt to solve the complex environmental problems of the 21st century. Book 2 provides supportive research, case studies, curriculum projects and commentary that extends and enriches the chapters presented in Book 1. The chapters provide rich descriptions related to Indigenous cultural beliefs and values; teacher thinking about Indigenous Science; the perceptions and experiences of successful Indigenous students in secondary science; a metaphorical study of Indigenous students’ orientations (scientific, spiritual, utilitarian, aesthetic, and recreational) to the seashore and their adult orientations 19 years later; the use of digital video as a learning tool for secondary Indigenous students; a cross-cultural marine education program involving an exploration of Western Science and Indigenous Science related to the local Indigenous culture; and a WSÁNEĆ immersion school program focused on language revitalization and the concept of “knowledge of most worth.” This book is licensed under a CC-BY-NC-SA Creative Commons license, with the exception of some of the images.
