Decolonization and Indigenization: Finding our Way Along the Path

Facilitated by Lindsay Brant, Centre for Teaching and Learning
Thursday, March 24, 2022; 10:30 – 11:30am Zoom

This webinar will talk about how Decolonization and Indigenization can be defined in a variety of contexts and frames of reference, and then bring us to a common understanding of the thoughts and feelings behind each. As both Indigenous peoples and Settlers, this conversational style workshop will allow us to find the ways in which we can collectively and individually work towards becoming more connected so we may build strong and healthy co-existences within the places and spaces we share. We will both teach and share with one another as we work towards achieving respectful, reciprocal, and mutually beneficial changes in our own relationships, and look forward to creating lasting and impactful institutional changes towards meaningful reconciliation.
