Abstract

This paper tracks the pedagogical genealogy that informs the delivery of the Growing Our Own program: longstanding and continuous commitment to Indigenous education from the Catholic sector, navigations to include bilingual education, and the articulation of both-ways learning and red dirt pedagogy. This mapping is interspersed with some poetic signposts, from an undergraduate participant and the author, as artefacts that illustrate enactment and embodiment this approach to teacher education: how the undergraduate participants can be empowered by the program, and how teaching in the program demands reflective, reflexive and perhaps transformative practices by the lecturers.
