Some of the topics addressed included:
- Storytelling in teaching and learning

- Professional learning opportunities related to storytelling
- The importance of administrative support for indigenizing the curriculum
- Getting out of the classroom and into the community
- Localizing the curriculum
- Alternative ways of representing knowledge and knowing
- Recognizing and including non-western voices
- Place as a way of connecting
