The Benefits of Land-Based Education and Programming

Land-Based Education Pamphlet cover

This resource was developed by Danielle Cherpako who was a Social Connectedness Fellow in 2019 with the Samuel Centre for Social Connectedness. The pamphlet summarizes some of the benefits of Indigenous-led, land-based education and the ways in which this type of programming aligns with climate action & environmental stewardship, the UN Sustainable Development Goals, UNDRIP, Reconciliation in Canada, MMIWG Recommendations, and the right to belong. The document was inspired by the work of the Misipawistik Pimatisiméskanaw land-based learning Program in Misipawistik Cree Nation, Manitoba, and by Becky Cook, the coordinator of the program.
