To promote, support and perpetuate Indigenous language, tradition and the wisdom of the Elders through Waldorf education.
Promouvoir, soutenir et maintenir la langue et les traditions autochtones grâce à la pédagogie Waldorf.
So the challenge today is to get back to the original principles of respecting the child and developing a concept of education around the child’s needs, around the child’s rhythms and teaching the child to be responsible, to follow his own talents, his own path and his own direction.
And I believe the system of Waldorf education does that and is open to bring in the languages, the teachings of the elders and the thousands of years of knowledge and traditions of being in harmony with the land, in harmony with each other, because their whole concept of teaching is teaching the child that we are all connected.
