Indigenous Education: Dances With Worms

Event Phone: 250-226-6702

    8:30 am - 2:30 pm

A day outdoors exploring environmental education through connecting through the magic of Indigenous Ways of Knowing. Come and learn our Sacred way to be with Mother Earth and learn what she has to teach us. You will also learn pedagogical strategies in how to teach our traditional Indigenous worldview to your students. What does the inquiry process look like through an Aboriginal lens? Is the life around us sentient? Sapient? How do we investigate science in a culturally appropriate and respectful way? This workshop takes place outdoors and is taught by an Indigenous educator.

4615 Passmore Upper Rd, Winlaw, British Columbia, Canada, V0G 2J0

  We are located in the beautiful Slocan Valley on an acreage just steps from Airy Creek. Our head office/ retreat centre is located in a unique hand crafted straw bale timber frame house. Our sweat lodge is also located onsite. There are two bed and breakfast rooms available for rent year round- call 250-226-6702 to inquire about an overnight stay with us! To find us: We are located at 4615 Passmore Upper the Slocan Valley.  Follow Highway 6 towards Nakusp/Winlaw from the Junction.  Go past the Slocan Park Co-op and turn left onto Passmore Upper Rd. Cross the silver bridge and continue straight (the road turns to gravel) to the end of the road where you will see a Y intersection. The left turns into a logging road so keep right where you see a “No Through Road” sign and follow down the windy road (there are a few blind corners so use your horn to let oncoming traffic know you’re coming!) the road will come to a straight stretch and about 1.5 km along you will see a large straw bale- timber frame house with a green roof and large reflective numbers on the left.  We are 4.5 km from the highway.  You are here!
