Dear Division 16,
Yesterday we learned a great deal from our session with our Aboriginal Education Enhancement Worker, Kim Kondra. She talked about the traditions of the Crew First Nations regarding food, among other things.
I found this article about First Nations oral tradition and what we are learning from modern science. Please read the article below and answer ONE of the following questions:
1. What are the strengths of a culture’s oral tradition (history shared through words). Give reasons for your choices
2. What other ways can modern scientists learn about the past? Give examples in your response.
I look forward to your responses,
