Yes, makes a lot of sense - thanks for unpacking those stories about the back-turning and the speaking frankly. I am a non-Indigenous person with a mixture of First Nation, Filipino, and European-heritage students and in many classes we have had a chance to reflect on different understandings about order of speaking - whether or not it is appropriate to speak up or to wait until being asked to speak. So I was curious to know how that information had been communicated to you. It's been really useful for me to learn, from conversations with students, how to ask about and/or present structures of turn-taking that sometimes need to be followed for an activity to take place.
