Sharing Identity Assignment- Assignment 2
Sharing Identity - Assignment #2
Several characteristics are considered common across many Indigenous peoples, cultures,
histories and contexts. Together, these emphasize an approach to knowledge that is
metaphysical, holistic, oral/symbolic, relational, and intergenerational. Indigenous ways of
knowing rely heavily on many forms of intelligence, including interpersonal, kinesthetic, and
spiritual. Within Indigenous knowledge systems, land is often regarded as Mother Earth, who
provides teaching that determines traditional values or ways of knowing.
Keeping the above statement in mind, for this assignment you are to investigate an Indigenous
group. You can look at a nation here in Canada, or you can look at a group from elsewhere
around the globe. Once you have learned a little about this group, pick one of the options

of all Indigenous Peoples so your assignment must keep a professional and respectful tone.
