Work on your G.P.A from a unique G.P.S.

Peru

Program Description

The travel study course begins in Lima with two weeks in Cusco and Puno (Floating
Island communities of Uros and Taquile of Lake Titicaca).

Students will examine the comparisons and contrasts of Indigenous and cross cultural experiences that can enrich perspectives in education, and other interrelated disciplines.

Through readings, story work, and field visits with local people, archeological sites, and communities; observational skills, engaging with community leaders/scholars and traditional ceremonies and education, students will learn about the historical to present Indigenous-Modern relationships; ways that lived experiences of past peoples/ancestors’ artefacts and knowledges are repatriated for current Indigenous inspired aspirations within Peruvian context; selected Indigenous cultures lived expressions of language, culture, and economy in Peru; and the ongoing themes and issues that challenge traditional knowledges and examine models of re-engagement with Indigenous perspectives.

Students will make the connections to Canadian Indigenous experiences and review literature that addresses Indigenous knowledges and perspectives on Indigenous repatriation, language renewal, cultural reclaiming, culturally relevant teaching and research.Local university student mentors will work with us to be our ‘eyes, ears, and voices’.
