Land-Based Indigenous Education Cohort

This Master of Education course based graduate program offers intensive land-based institutes where students take graduate level courses framed within an Indigenous paradigm and taught primarily by Indigenous faculty.
Note: the Land-Based Indigenous Cohort is in progress. The next intake will be for the Summer, 2016.


The Land-Based Indigenous Education cohort supports and accommodates students who are unable to commit to long periods of study away from home. Students are required to live on-site for the duration of institutes (2 weeks each) so that contact hours with faculty, Indigenous communities and the land are maximized. Study occurs through four institutes (8 courses) at the Opaskwayak Cree Nation, Manitoba, summer 2013; Hawaii, January 2014; Xwisten First Nation, summer 2014; and TBD for summer 2015. Two online courses supplement graduate course work.
