Ininiw Methodologies

The talk will center around the concept of a “wholistic worldview” and touch on how the ININIW (Cree) arrived at the shoes of knowledge. All cultures have utilized their natural surroundings to attain a comfortable living. This meant: observation, research, theorizing, hypothesizing, and experimentation/invention. The ININIW went about acquiring knowledge in a series of methodological steps.
