Learning From Cordillera Peoples Indigenous Earth Wisdom 2016
Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary is offering a one-day workshop entitled "Learning from Indigenous Earth Wisdom of the Cordillera Peoples". Through this workshop, we hope to promote a holistic understanding of the earth, and a deeper appreciation of indigenous earth wisdom of the Cordillera peoples as a valuable knowledge system that can contribute to solutions to the multiple crisis we face at present. The workshop is open to all interested persons, indigenous or non-indigenous.
The workshop has the following objectives:
1. To build an appreciation for indigenous knowledge and its contributions to the sustaining of life of Planet Earth
2. To unlearn the myths and misconceptions about indigenous knowledge, (i.e.,backward and superstitious)
3. To provide material for Indigenous People’s Education (IPEd) curriculum development for teachers
4. To provide a venue for mutual learning and sharing on the indigenous knowledge of the Cordillera people
The workshop will be conducted on Sep 24, 2016, Saturday, 8am - 5pm at the Auditorium of the Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary.
