An Indigenous Perspective with Denise – RECORDING

What:  Denise McLaughlin will explain an indigenous perspective, which will help us relate to indigenous peoples, and teach their unique perspective in meaningful and authentic ways.

Denise is Metis from Southern Ontario.  Her family’s lineage can be traced back to the Red River Settlement, now Winnipeg, Manitoba.  As an Indigenous person, Denise feels God has gifted her with a strong spiritual awareness and a heart for creation.  Denise graduated from The Indigenous Education Program at UBC. NITEP has a focus on Indigenous education and best education practices for teaching Indigenous curriculum.  Denise has lived and worked in remote First Nations communities and has connections in several Coast Salish communities.  She has also had the opportunity to attend Church services on reserve and has attended the Native Pentecostal Church.  Dr. Jo-anne Archibald’s teaching of story-work and Denise’s own experiences of sharing stories help to define her practice of building relationships and connections with students.

“I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t nurturing or caring for something”

– Denise McLaughlin
