Raising Nisga’a Language, Sovereignty, and Land Based Education Through Traditional Carving Knowledge
This is the first known study to focus on the philosophy and pedagogical practices of the Nisga’a carving tradition as a form of knowledge production and transmission through the repatriation and carving of new pst’aan (totem pole) in the Nisga’a language. The project will improve access to traditional land-based knowledge in the Nisga’a language through the development and use of innovative virtual reality (VR) technology.
