Sovereign and Symbiotic: A Both/And Approach to Reconciling Ways of Knowing

This video explores the strengths of both Indigenous and Western Ways of Knowing, and how we can situation them as sovereign yet symbiotic approaches to thinking about learning, life, and the places and spaces we share. This talk explores the opportunity that exists when we appreciate and understand both approaches as valid ways of knowing, and work to rebalance the power imbalances between the two ways of knowing. It encourages the questioning of the positioning of Western knowledges as the ‘norm’ and Indigenous knowledges as something to be ‘added’ on. The conversation is grounded in two culturally symbolic approaches to thinking about this which are the Haudenosaunee concept of the Two Row Wampum and the story of The Three Sisters.

Indigenous Ways of Knowing Webinar Series

Moving from Patchwork Pandemic Pedagogy to Pedagogy of Peace

April 2020
Facilitated by Lindsay Brant, Centre for Teaching and Learning

Lindsay Brant, Educational Developer, Indigenous Curriculum and Ways of Knowing, along with colleagues in the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at Queen’s University will lead us through a webinar and Q&A style session that focuses on shifting our mindset from pandemic pedagogy (remote delivery during Covid-19) to a more purposeful pedagogy of peace that builds upon the three core teachings of the Haudenosaunee Great Law of Peace, which are peace, strength, and a good mind. This is for educators who are looking for ways to take a learner-centred approach to teaching and learning, through using compassionate educational frameworks and techniques to lead all learners through their learning journey with integrity, optimism, loving kindness, and support.

Decolonization and Indigenization: Finding our Way Along the Path

September 2020
Facilitated by Lindsay Brant, Centre for Teaching and Learning

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.
