ᑕᐯᐧᐃᐧᐣ tapwewin: Dismantling Anti-Indigenous Racism - This introductory workshop will encourage educators to critically reflect on concepts such as white privilege, systemic racism and assimilation.  Historical and contemporary examples of anti-Indigenous racism will be explored, and participants will be challenged to consider their own role in dismantling anti-Indigenous racism.  Educators will leave with a foundational understanding of anti-racism with a focus on Indigenous Peoples, and will also be equipped with suggested resources for further learning. Note that portions of this workshop may be difficult for some participants, particularly for Indigenous Peoples and/or those who have experienced racism.

A Call to Action for Advancing Indigenous Women in Education: Restoring Balance through Truth, Justice and Reconciliation - “For our young women, for our grandmothers, for our women who travel with us, we are sacred because we exist. We are sacred because we have survived.” – Excerpt from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Final Report. Throughout this session you will examine historical and contemporary issues, challenges and inequities for Indigenous women, including action to support reclaiming power and place. You will deepen your understanding of why it’s crucial to support Indigenous women and how you can contribute to restoring balance within education systems.
