About First Nations Education Doctorate
Create Shared Vision
Expand your First Nations knowledge of the past for future generations.
Support your community and build your experience with the First Nations Education Doctoral program (FNED). You’ll experience a holistic worldview of the Indigenous people of Turtle Island (North America). FNED is centered in Indigenous teaching and learning methods to support you in reconnecting with original, ancestral knowledge and apply them to your work and the community.
Passing down knowledge from generation to generation.
Indigenous teaching and learning is grounded in the time-honored oral tradition. Oral scholars and academic faculty collaborate and co-teach classes. Through this dialogue, you’ll get the chance to interact with learning and teaching activities not always possible within the normal academic channels, meaning you’ll see things from a wider range of perspectives.
A Deep well Of Creativity
"My experience in the doctoral program has been an opportunity to collaborate with some of the best minds on this Turtle Island from our Indigenous world. Our cohort is making a contribution to that same bundle of creativity. The well of creativity becomes deeper by what we share with each other."
