Integrative Science brings together scientific knowledges and ways of knowing from Indigenous and Western world views to provide science education. This “bringing knowledges together” is known as Toqwa’tu’kl Kjijitaqnn in the Mi’kmaq language and as “Two-Eyed Seeing” in the words of Mi’kmaw Elder Albert Marshall. “Two-Eyed Seeing” is more than a label ... it is a powerful reminder of the Integrative Science program’s visionary goal of learning to see from our one eye with the strengths of Indigenous knowledges and from our other eye with the strengths of mainstream scientific knowledges...and to use these together for the benefit of all. The Integrative Science program works to achieve such “Living Knowledge for the 21st Century” through learning opportunities in classrooms, laboratories, outdoors, community workshops, and work placements.
