Module 5 of the Decolonizing Education Certificate by the Centre for Indigegogy begins to draw attention to one’s positionality in relationship with Indigenous people. It examines structural and critical change; experiences of working with Indigenous people and combating institutional racism toward change.
Ben generates a space where participants can deeply explore their positionality. He brings a depth of life and teaching experience to the circle process.
As participants, you will leave with:
- Experience Indigenous protocols for examining treaty relations, privilege, and a wholistic sense of our identity.
- Respect cultural teachings in a circle process that connects us to land and treaties.
- Explore your position (individual, racial, cultural, national, professional, spiritual) in colonial history.
- Have an experiential learning experience about your role in “truth” and “reconciliation."
