Walking in Two Worlds

Education was continual and perpetual in everything that we did. And that way then you became a whole person because there was education for the body, there was education for the mind and for the unseen. -- Larry Aitken, Leech Lake Ojibwe

Knowledge of aboriginal peoples is a significant factor influencing the achievement rate of aboriginal students in educational institutions. Teacher education has only recently begun to incorporate knowledge of aboriginal history, culture and pedagogies into its curriculum and has much work to do given the long and destructive history of the education system on aboriginal peoples.
