Our focus is Indigenous science, that science / environmental / nature-based knowledge which comes from the lived experiences of First Nations peoples over many generations. It is a very broad conversation primarily led by the interests and enthusiasms of those who get involved. There is great scope for us to follow up on whatever our membership feels is important, significant and worth sharing. Our aims are:
- To promote First Nations science, teaching and education
- To support all educators who would like to improve their knowledge and understanding of Indigenous science and how to access and use it in their teaching
- To involve Indigenous scientists, educators and community members who support the inclusion of Indigenous knowledge in teaching science and are open to dialogue and sharing about their own experiences.
