Ttiis literature-based study explores the holistic and tradition-based Anishinawbe knowledge systems and what it means to know in the Anishinawbe sense. Several aspects of discussion include the source from which knowledge is attained, the manner in which knowledge is passed down through the generations, and how one can recognize that knowledge through various ways of knowing. Or, what does it mean to ‘know’ in a traditional Anishinawbe sense? Implications and the importance of Anishinawbe epistemology and culture in traditional Anishinawbe education are also discussed. This study is holistic in the same basis as that of the Anishinawbe knowledge system which is interconnected with all things. This provides some understanding of the complexities of this and provides insight to the roots of traditional Anishinawbe teachings and knowledge acquisition.
