Abstract: This research seeks to explore the understanding of, and representation of Indigenous knowledges within elementary schools within the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. Moreover, the research seeks to examine the perceived barriers that are faced by educators in the representation of Indigenous knowledges within elementary urban schools. The research will conclude by exploring some recommendations on reshaping educational institutions to better incorporate Indigenous content and knowledge within elementary schools. This research confirms what First Nations parents, communities and students already know, western systems of education are continuing to fail First Nations students and by extension First Nations communities as they continue to perpetuate colonial approaches to the delivery of education for First Nations students.
