Covid-19 drastically altered the landscape of education globally. For Indigenous land-based educators, whose immersive programs require that students be out on the land together, these changes were/are particularly concerning. In response to these concerns, Dechinta hosted a Covid-19 Webinar Series in the summer of 2020 to examine the risks of moving Indigenous land-based education online and to brainstorm possible solutions or alternatives to carrying out land-based education during the pandemic. We also created a supplementary report that summarizes the findings from these webinars and provides resources for land-based educators. This project was carried out in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation. Learn more about their work at mastercardfdn.org
