Learning From Practice

Wondering what approaches Saskatchewan teachers are trying in their classrooms?
Looking for a way to reflect meaningfully on your classroom or school settings?

Keynote Speaker – Chris Scribe

Chris Scribe, Nakota/Nehiyaw (Assiniboine/Cree) from the Carry the Kettle Nakoda Oyade, is grounded in his Indigenous culture, language, and tradition. His worldview has been foundationally built on the life teachings of his father and grandmother, and Chris has become an advocate for Indigenous knowledge in education. Chris is the founder of Think Indigenous, a conference designed to inspire educators to incorporate Indigenous knowledge into the everyday practices of teaching, and of the Red Talks. Currently Chris is the director of the Indian Teacher Education Program (ITEP) at the University of Saskatchewan. ITEP is in its 47th year of operation. A post-secondary success story for First Nations students, ITEP has quietly led the way in the inclusion of Indigenous language, culture, and identity in teacher education.
