For too long, Canadian society has been rooted in colonial approaches and Euro-centrism, creating negative impacts on Indigenous Peoples and all Canadians – and the post-secondary education system is by no means an exception. Indigenization aims to address this legacy through the integration of Indigenous perspectives in curriculum and other educational contexts. In this session, we will explore what is meant by Indigenization, how it relates to decolonization and reconciliation, why it’s important, and how you, as a curriculum developer, can participate.
