I made strong personal connections with Kovach’s emphasis on capturing the voices of Indigenous people . While she simultaneously acknowledges the challenges of providing an accurate, authentic representation of others’ perspectives, the narrative offers a chance to listen with intention, and to hopefully understand more fully. This course was my first opportunity to "hear" others' stories through online "conversations",to begin to get to know people by the narratives that they shared. It was a strange experience, meeting someone's mind, but often, never seeing their face. But it was through such shared conversations, through the stories, that we began to forge new relationships.
