Etuaptmumk – Two-Eyed Seeing

Mi’kmaw Elder Albert Marshall developed this concept in Nova Scotia to describe how Indigenous perspectives and TK (Traditional Knowledge) should be used as though they are one eye, while Western ideas about science and knowledge should be used as though they are the other eye. Using them together makes for a more complete picture than one or the other alone. Two-Eyed Seeing is a way of bringing together science and Traditional Knowledge to understand the world better and acknowledge the importance of Indigenous perspectives in science. This concept of Two-Eyed Seeing, as applied in modern times, can lead to powerful transcultural and collaborative work with the goal of leaving the world a better place for future generations.
