Land and Governance: Inherent Responsibilities to the Future Generations

Course details

This course will instruct students to understand the connections within traditional forms of governance structures in the natural world. In-depth, this class will dissect the spiritual connection we hold to the future generations, not only as Indigenous people but as caretakers alongside animals. This course is part of the universal structure that explains the spiritual laws of the Creator using the matriarchal responsibilities of animals and how we can learn and relate to them as spiritual relatives. Content will be delivered entirely through oral interpretation as was taught to the instructor through cultural protocol. The instructor will help students connect understandings of the essential sacred role of the traditional matriarchal family structure. It is vital that students participate in the land-based fieldwork for the course, as it will relate all content via hands-on Indigenous approach.
