Kisutmi’: How do we move forward
in a Co-Learning Journey?

Kisutumi’ and Etuaptmumk are Mi’kmaq words that describe coming together in the spirit of a co-learning journey. Etuaptmumk (Two-Eyed Seeing ) was brought forward by Elders Albert and Murdena Marshall, from the Eskasoni community in Unama’ki ( Cape Bretnon Island ). Etuaptmumk is learning to see from one eye with the strengths of Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing, and from the other eye with the strengths of Western knowledges and ways of knowing, and learning to use both eyes to mindfully together, for the benefit of all.

This innovative, co-learning approach to education and research fostered by Elders Albert and Murdena MArshall, along with the rest of their team at Insititute for Integrative Science and Health, has recieved international acclaim, and as a result of its success, Two-Eyed Seeing has been adopted by communities across Canada. In recognitiion of their efforts, Elder Albert and Murdena were both awarded an Honorary Doctor of Letters from CBU in 2009.
