First Peoples Principles of Learning

First Peoples Principles of Learning (FNESC)


Learning ultimately supports the well-being of the self,
the family, the community, the land, the spirits, and
the ancestors.

Learning is holistic, reflexive, reflective, experiential,
and relational (focused on connectedness, on
reciprocal relationships, and a sense of place).

Learning involves recognizing the consequences
of one’s actions.

Learning involves generational roles and
responsibilities.

Learning recognizes the role of indigenous
knowledge.

Learning is embedded in memory, history,
and story.

Learning involves patience and time.

Learning requires exploration of one’s identity.

Learning involves recognizing that some
knowledge is sacred and only shared with
permission and/or in certain situations.
