What are Indigenous Protocols?

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Wednesday, October 16, 2019, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: The Oak Room, Vanier Hall
Instructors: Jaimie Kechego

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.

This workshop will provide information for applicants as well as examples of a grant application for further clarification. This session will explore ideas and share possible approaches and networks to assist Nanadagikenim grant applications.

Looking at weaving traditional practices into curriculum

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Wednesday, November 06, 2019, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: The Katzman Lounge
Instructors: Jaimie Kechego
As you develop curriculum, keep in mind that to decolonize teaching and learning, it is critical that Indigenous voices be brought to the forefront, for example, through Indigenous success stories, Indigenous cultural approaches, and Indigenous led research. In this workshop, we will explore what counts as Indigenous perspective and what is and isn’t appropriate to be shared and used and provide you with some guidelines to consider when navigating choices about Indigenous content. We will also explore the importance of local knowledge and the role that curriculum developers can play in supporting Indigenous curriculum and pedagogy.

What are Indigenous pedagogies?

Registration for this event is now closed.
Schedule: Wednesday, November 27, 2019, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location: The Katzman Lounge
Instructors: Jaimie Kechego
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 workshop provides a discussion of Indigenous epistemologies and pedagogies and how these can be interwoven in curriculum design and development.
