The Ways of Knowing Guide: Earth's Teachings

Turtle Island Conservation / Toronto Zoo

This guide is a journey of Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee traditional knowledge, reflected through worldviews, values, beliefs, and stories that speak to the fundamental principle of ensuring sustainable relationships with the land. While there are many Indigenous nations in Canada, this guide focuses on the knowledge of the Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee nations, as the shared caretakers of the Great Lakes area. However, we must not forget that at one point in our history, all of this knowledge just as Indigenous people believed the land to be, was considered communal. Our intention is that the value of information found within this guide will be beneficial for all people who read it, and a respect for different ways of knowing will be honoured.
