“Each day that Indigenous rights are not honoured or fulfilled, inequality between Indigenous peoples and the settler society grows.
– Idle No More, “The Story”

In Canada, we are still dealing with the legacy of colonization. Media, institutions, and ordinary people still perpetuate harmful stereotypes and beliefs about Indigenous Peoples. This creates a society that continues to discriminate against Indigenous Peoples. Decolonization is the “undoing” of colonization and a process by which Indigenous Peoples are regaining their rightful place in Canada and are thriving. In session 3, we will address some of the challenges that exist because of centuries of institutionalized racism.

POSTPONED: Engaging with Indigenous communities

No seats available.

You may join a waiting-list for this workshop.

Schedule: (Self-paced)
Location: McPherson Lounge
Instructors: Jaimie Kechego
As Indigenization is the process of bringing together Indigenous knowledge systems and approaches with those of the mainstream academy, it is critical that this work be done in partnership with Indigenous people. If learning is to occur in relationship, it is essential for curriculum developers to build relationships and work together with Indigenous people. In this session, we will begin to explore how to build relationships with Indigenous people in respectful and meaningful ways.

POSTPONED - Meaningful Integration of Indigenous Epistemologies and Pedagogies

No seats available.

You may join a waiting-list for this workshop.

Schedule: (Self-paced)
Location: The Oak Room, Vanier Hall
Instructors: Jaimie Kechego

This workshop will be rescheduled at a later date due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Indigenization of curriculum requires much more than adding Indigenous content. In an education system that has, since its inception and into the present day, valued Western ways of thinking almost exclusively, Indigenization of curriculum requires us to bring Indigenous ways of thinking, being, and learning into course design. This session will provide a discussion of Indigenous epistemologies and pedagogies and how these can be interwoven in curriculum design and development.
