Beaded tweets is based on Noelle Pepin's MEd Project that interweaves and interconnects Indigenous culture, beading, and coding. Beaded tweets have been implemented in K-12 classes and teacher education. In this session, beaded tweets and its learning intentions are described and how the act of beading can connect learners to the curricular competencies in mathematics. The story begins with teacher education, research, and bringing the curricular competencies alive with Indigenous pedagogies.
