Îethka Nakoda Youth
TELUS Spark Science Centre, alongside the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), is supporting the Îethka Nakoda Youth to learn about Bows & Arrows, Stories & Math. The Youth of Îethka Nakoda will get to create bows and arrows using traditional materials, stories, and methods taught by Îethka Knowledge Keepers Daryl Kootenay and Kyle Snow, Îethka Elders, and math and engineering support provided by Engineering Designer Richard Lushai. All of which brings together Indigenous and Western knowledge, science, engineering, and math.
These workshops are not open to the public, and are by invitation only, priority to Îethka Nakoda Youth.
On June 21, everyone will be invited to the Indigenous Science Event that will showcase what these youth learned during these workshops! People are invited to hear about what they learned about traditional stories and engineering, and see bow and arrow demonstrations. Come join the Youth, Leaders, and Knowledge Keepers from this project, and experience how Indigenous Knowledge and Western science come together.
