To the many human and more-than-human persons who contributed to this work, I offer the deepest gratitude. In particular, I would like to acknowledge:

The original human research participants in this study: three teachers whose dedication to the learning experiences of their students is inspiring.

Cherie Westmoreland, who graciously donated her photographs and creative energy to the project. Barbara Mader, for her patient coaching as I learned the art of collage. David McIntyre and the Prairie Pride Chorus for the inspiration held within their songs. Brenda MacLauchlan, Ruth Blaser, and Mhora Hepburn who introduced me to dowsing and provided inspiration and support through many stages of gestation and emergence. Tai Njio, who taught me to shift discourses with thought, intuition and intention.

The Sacred Web Singers, both individually and collectively. Together with Carolyn McDade (songwriter and composer), and many talented musicians, they continually re-create much of the music within this hypertext.

The many more-than-human residents in my yard, garden, home and neighbourhood who offer inspiration and insight on a daily basis. My appreciation goes to both those who are clearly identifiable, and those who remain anonymous.

Those who helped me work through much of the technology, and associated ideas: Peta White, Anson Li, Dan Coggins, Rob Baille; Brenda Mergel, Ian Jensen, and many others. My parents, who instilled in me a love of learning and of Land.

Many humans and their spirit guides; in particular, William Sgrazzutti, Shawna Ross, and Marie Battiste. My own internal and external guides, who acted as pilots, steering me beyond the boxes of Western epistemologies, and eventually, ontologies, to and through many of the methods and insights used herein.

My committee: Supervisor, Dr. Paul Hart, whose commitment to epistemological, ontological and representational congruence launched me on this journey; Dr. Connie Russell who ensured the presence of Land remained in the foreground; Dr. Carol Schick whose openness to the power of intuition in its many forms enabled the writing of the final explanatory piece; Dr. Shauneen Pete who joined the committee late in the process and helped me come to speech. Dr. Kathy Nolan, whose doctoral dissertation broke ground for this work at University of Regina.

Finally, projects like these are difficult to achieve without some degree of financial security and the gift of time that offers. I am grateful to the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada which, together with the University of Regina Faculties of Education, and Graduate Studies and Research, provided funding that enabled me to take the time, and the risks, demanded by this work. I also acknowledge the financial support of the Saskatchewan School Board's Association and the University of Saskatchewan Publications Fund Grant who assisted in funding the hypertextual representation.
