Reimagining Care/Work Policies

Mary Caroline Rowan has spent the last forty years travelling and working between Inuit Nunangat and Montreal, Quebec. Her interest is in living Inuit ways of knowing and being through pedagogy and curriculum, in places where young children and families are engaged. The trail has involved working in communities with Elders, parents’ children and teachers. This work has led to the construction of child care centres, the adoption of policy, the development of organizational manuals, and the creation of curricula. It has involved teacher/parent education, the making of Inuktitut language children’s books, the assembling of learning stories and a proposal to adopt Nunangat pedagogies as strategy to think with land, snow and ice.
