What are Indigenous Protocols?
What is smudging? Who is an Elder? Why and when should we use Indigenous medicines? These are common questions for those of us who are interested in incorporating Indigenous practices in our events, activities, and courses.
This interactive workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to engage with questions like these, as well as with strategies for practicing proper protocols when working with Indigenous people and communities. Developing a facility with these protocols will lead to more robust conversations and collaborations on campus as we move forward with the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action and the Universities Canada Principles on Indigenous Education.
