Course Description

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.

  • Explore your position (individual, racial, cultural, national, professional, spiritual) in colonial history.
  • Have an experiential learning experience about your role in “truth” and “reconciliation."
