Online Learning Series – Schools – kiskêyihtamowin: learning through experiences

Originally designed for schools during covid, kiskêyihtamowin: learning through experiences was created to connect students with the thousands of years of culture and history at Wanuskewin in a time when in-person visits were not possible.

Now, this online learning series serves as a digital library for the teachings, stories, and information at Wanuskewin to be shared in classrooms, trainings, workshops, homes, and workplaces.

Developed by interpreters and based on expertise, stories, and teachings from Elders, Knowledge Keepers, archaeologists, and other experts, Kiskêyihtamowin provides a way to learn about the scientific findings and historical and contemporary cultural traditions of the people of the Northern Plains

Topics such as:

  • Traditional dance styles and regalia
  • Native plants, how to honour them and use them.
  • The Plains Cree style of tipi and the lessons and values associated with each pole and each stage of life from childhood to Elder
  • The importance of the bison to the People of the Plains including methods of hunting, the uses for each part of the animal and their cultural significance
  • The archaeological findings of the opimihāw Valley and what they can tell us about the past
  • Cultural awareness including language, culture, art, and clothing.
