In the reading, decolonization and reinhabitation is talked about in several ways. The main theme seemed to be the rivers, as well as communicating with the community. The youth discussed issues with the land, river and people with other community members. The elders and the youth also went travelling to the waters, lands and also exploring language, land management, history and issues of governance. These trips and explorations helped everyone understand the connections with everyone as well as the environments.

Just like the readings, trips can be taken with students in my classroom to explore our surroundings and environments. Being able to see all of these different places would then be able to help the students make connections to relationships and people. Even having lessons outside as opposed to going on a field trip could help students learn about their surroundings and the environment.
