Anishinaabek N’Bi (water) Pedagogies
This presentation will share knowledge on Anishinaabek N’bi pedagogies that we are water, water is life, water has a spirit, water is medicine, and is the lifeblood of Mother Earth. Everything starts with spirit as reciprocity to our responsibility in our relationships with N’bi. The presentation will contrast Anishinaabek worldview to mainstream society’s worldview, exploring women’s roles and responsibilities in water governance.
