Topics will be explored using both traditional First Nation's and scientific frameworks, emphasis being balanced between Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK), as well as the scientific method. This course will introduce students to the study of plants, animals and food systems; ethno-botany will be introduced to complement the 'system of scientific classification'. A laboratory component will allow students to conduct experiments that will further their understanding of plant and animal life.
