Incorporating Aboriginal Wisdom to Promote Ecoliteracy

BY JUNE KAMINSKI
@ VOL 6 ON MAR 24, 2016

Ecological sustainability is a goal of many Canadian organizations and professionals, including nurses. The most logical source of sustainability wisdom that promotes ecological wholeness are traditional Aboriginal teachings and philosophies. Nursing educational programs are beginning to incorporate Aboriginal wisdom into curriculum to promote holistic nursing care of First Nations, Metis and Inuit people and to help evolve ecoliteracy. Nursing faculty follow a mandate to teach students to be active agents of advocacy for global issues including environmental health and ecology.

This Pechakucha by June Kaminski addresss how students create content to help nurses explore ecological issues and engage in the process of finding solutions to critical issues, and how Aboriginal wisdom supports this. It also explore show the Canadian Nurses for Health of the Environment encourages all Canadian nurses to become involved in promoting ecological sustainability on a national level.
