Meet our Founding Members
New and continuing FNPN members engage in innovative pedagogical projects by collaborating with communities and those working in the Indigenous early learning and child care and related sectors, to their benefit—and to share what of this important work may be shared, developed and celebrated more widely.
The founding members of the FNPN pilot started working together in the Winter of 2019. The FNPN arose within their commitments to cultivate relationships with educators, programs, staff, Elders, community members and other knowledge keepers in local work and community contexts—bound together in the transformative networked collaborative of the pilot.
FNPN continues to celebrate their leadership, and honours their role in bringing to life the First Nations Pedagogies Network. In their inspiration and teachings, it continues to support and strengthen Indigenous cultures and cultural practices in First Nations ECE and community contexts, in fidelity to Indigenous rights to autonomy and cultural continuity, renewal and resurgence.
