Thinking with Nunangat:  Pedagogies for/with Inuit early childhood education

Situated in the Arctic, Carol (Mary Caroline) Rowan‘s research engages with Inuit Elders, hunters, children, educators and families on the land and ice, near the water and with snow. Its aim is to shift towards Inuit ways of knowing and being in early childhood practice. Thinking with the environment of this particular northern place is critical to this project.  At the meeting place of a tidal salt water ocean and a rushing fresh water river (frozen for more than half the year), I consider the negotiation of relational, cultural, and linguistic identities within the context of early childhood practices. One underlying question arising through the research asks: How might we erode Euro western hegemony early childhood discourses through Nunangat pedagogies?
