Faculty brown bag: Decolonizing the Academy
Drawing on treaties, national and international law, the work of other Indigenous scholars, and personal experiences, this presentation documents the nature of Eurocentric models of education, their devastating impacts on Indigenous knowledge and peoples, and the losses they entail for improved learning for all. Chronicling the negative consequences of forced assimilation and the failure of current educational policies to bolster the social and economic conditions of Aboriginal peoples, the presentation highlights the costs of ongoing colonial practices and the benefits to all of reconciliation, transsystemic transformations, and accreditation by the World Indigenous Nations Higher Education Consortium (WINHEC)
Decolonizing Education: Nourishing Their Learning Spirits
Drawing on my book of the same title, I share its inspirations of events, people, and my activism that have taken me through work in developing awareness of and the injustices and inequities in education for Indigenous peoples and the devastating impacts on them. From my research and writing and continuing community-based activism in my communities, I share the key features of educational change that must be addressed in decolonization of education not just for Indigenous Peoples but for all as a way to eliminate racism and rebuild a spirit of reconciliation and repositioning of Indigenous knowledge and humanities as new frames for a just society and nourishing our learning spirits.
