Dakelh Holistic Learning Model Rotatable: Home

The poster on the left rotates if you click on the rings. You can also click and hold to drag the rings.
The Dakelh Holistic Learning Model is not a static model. This rotatable model represents how each aspect is equally important and interconnected in many ways. Even the seasons blend into each other which represents our connection to the land through seasonal rounds. Seasonal rounds are not necessarily the four seasons but rather time and space in alignment and connection with our ecosystems. It may span months to years from time immemorial to infinity. Some Dakelh even identify two spring times. It's all about paying attention to our surroundings, ourselves and understanding how we are a part of it all.
The center is all of creation; we placed Hoduleh-a (the learner) at the center as we're all learning.
We learn amongst our community.
The values are integral to our ways of knowing.
We learn these through the three lenses of Protocol, Language, and Land/Experiential Learning
The seasonal rounds and water are the foundation of our learning and existence. Water is Life.
We greatly appreciate the contributions of the numerous participants in the development of this Dakelh Holistic Lifelong Learning Model. This model was developed in collaboration with local and regional Dakelh Elders in 2013 through a series of consultation meetings. It has been approved for use by the Lheidli T'enneh. We acknowledge that Indigenous worldviews vary from community to community and honour the diversity of Indigenous knowledges.
