Etuaptmumk is a Mi’kmaw saying that translates to “Two – Eyed Seeing.” This concept refers to learning how to see from one eye the strengths of Indigenous knowledge, and from the other eye the strengths of Western knowledge. Two-Eyed Seeing can lead to powerful collaborative work between Native and Non-Native people with the goal of leaving the world a better place for future generations. Join IAIS Education Coordinator and Traditional Storyteller Darlene Kascak, Schaghticoke Tribal Nation along with IAIS Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf for an interactive presentation and discussion that examines how people can include this “Two-Eyed Seeing” concept in their daily lives. We invite you to join the conversation.
