“Blackfoot people have their own systems for developing new knowledge in traditional ways. It’s less focused on categories and more interested in how things come together.” (Ryan Heavy Head, 2007). In an attempt to integrate the holistic perspectives of indigenous epistemology where “All things, material and spiritual, are interconnected and interdependent in a circular pattern of the cycles of nature” (Leik, 2009, p.19), LINCDIRE’s pedagogy is based on the Medicine Wheel, a key symbol in Indigenous cultures and central to the spirituality and sacred practices of First Nations peoples. In this framework, the learner is seen holistically in different stages of maturity (childhood, adolescence and adulthood) as a thinking, verbal and non-verbal, emotional and spiritual human being rooted in the values of her/his plurilingual and pluricultural communities. LINCDIRE integrates this inclusive perspective to guide learning through each of the quadrants of the Medicine Wheel, whether in the instructional design of learning tasks or the LITE (Language Integration through E-portfolio) architecture that students use to reflect on their learning.
