What is 8 Ways of Knowing?
The ‘8 ways of knowing’ is a relational learning system that is based on the traditional knowledge wheel – a process of building cultural knowledge and sharing that is passed down through generations. It allows the knowledge keepers to build and pass on knowledge at stages of maturity and wisdom. These eight forms of knowledge are:
- AIR – Narrative
- FIRE – Ceremony
- WATER – Memory
- EARTH – Connecting
- STARS – Journey
- BLOOD – Reflective
- WOOD – Healing
- TOTEM – Spirit
8 ways of Knowing
1. 8 Ways of Knowing: Cultural Knowledge Exchange
This program builds further knowledge and is recommended as a follow up training to anyone that has attended Cultural Awareness Training.
2. 8 Ways of Knowing: Leadership Program
This Training runs over 8-10 weeks depending on the structure and requirement. The aim of the training focuses on building cultural leadership understanding to establish and decolonise western models of leadership that First Nation people see as barriers to opportunities of growth and progression.
3. 8 Ways of Knowing: Cultural Mentoring
Why is Cultural Mentoring important to First Nation employment, retention and career progression?
First Nation employees working in mainstream agencies often feel burdened and experience challenges that impact on their cultural safety and wellbeing. The concept of ’working in two worlds’ might be new to many cross sector agencies but for First Nation employees this can be a barrier to career satisfaction and progression.
4. 8 Ways of Knowing: Creative & Cultural Inclusion
This program explores leadership, healing and storytelling in building individual connections to knowledge sharing, community and culture through the means of expressive creative forms and yarning circles.
