Land-Based Learning

Each year, approximately 200 Grade 9 students for eight different Aspen View schools spend three days and two nights participating in Aspen View’s Indigenous Land Based program. The program was developed to introduce staff and students to an Indigenous paradigm of learning in which they live fully and consciously. It is predicated upon a holistic lifestyle approach, utilizing four quadrants to acquire knowledge: physical, spiritual, cognitive and emotional.  Students used the ‘land as text’ as a means for experiential education.
