Closing the gap is our shared responsability
The only way to close the gap of Indigenous disadvantage is through education. At Indigicate, we have designed curriculum based outdoor education programs that use Indigenous knowledge systems to authentically educate young people about Indigenous culture and history. We believe that if we authentically teach young people using open conversations that we will change a generation and close the gap of Indigenous disadvantage.
Authentic Indigenous Outdoor Education
Our outdoor education programs work because they are authentic. Our motto ‘We don’t conquer mountains, we understand them’ comes from the wisdom of our old people and is the very essence of every Indigicate outdoor education program. The journeys are designed to encourage relationship building through conversation and story telling. Our educators are experienced leaders who are passionate about Indigenous culture and the journey towards unity. Our programs use Indigenous language, teach Indigenous connection and connect with local Indigenous people.
Sequential curriculum built around Outdoor Education
Indigicate’s outdoor education programs use sequential curriculum, combined with pre- and post- camp incursions that aim to promote deep learning outcomes. We know that schools are busy places and appreciate the time pressures placed on teachers. This is why we have developed Indigenous curriculum for outdoor education. All schools participate in camps and learning on country is our speciality. Using us to design and facilitate school camps will ensure that schools can teach Indigenous curriculum authentically with minimal impact to the schools timetable. Our pre camp incursions are designed to prepare the students with knowledge about the area and introduce the students to the Indigenous curriculum. Post camp we unpack the learning from camp and measure the learning outcomes. All of this is completed with minimal impact to the schools timetable
