Tales from the Science Buffalo

A series of interactive classroom presentations with engaging science activities that honour Aboriginal Ways of Knowing and introduce careers in the Sciences.

Inspired by the saying "Education is the new buffalo" (as supported by University of Manitoba professor, Blair Stonechild's book The New Buffalo). Each of our visits is a chapter in a book of tales that engages students in the interface between Indigenous Ways of Knowing and Western Science and gives them an opportunity to explore their gifts in the sciences.
