We have not even begun to address the far-reaching, positive implications of truly honoring the gifts indigenous cultures of to offer not only higher education and the education process in general, but the world at large. - Ilarion Merculieff

Join us for an interactive and intimate two-day Natural Way workshop on indigenous ways of learning and being with Ilarion Merculieff and Libby Roderick.

Circle with Aleut native teacher Ilarion and Libby, co-authors of Stop Talking, Indigenous Ways of Teaching and Learning and Difficult Dialogues in Higher Education.

Through interactive circles and reflection in the natural surroundings of the wildlife refuge, we'll explore how it is we relate to one another, how we learn, and how we structure teaching experiences within our culture.

Teachers, lifelong learners, parents, educational guides, and students alike are encouraged to attend and to dive into how it is we learn in our culture ... and how that affects and shapes our classrooms and communities.

Part of our time will be outdoors; please come prepared for all types of weather. Bring your sack lunch and water bottle. Families are encourages to participate.
