Nation2Nation Speaker Series:  Indigenizing the University

In June 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission released its executive summary and calls for action. Several of the 94 recommendations for moving forward with reconciliation were aimed at institutions of higher education, calling on universities across the country to incorporate Indigenous ways of knowing, Indigenous knowledge holders, and Indigenous cultures and traditions into all aspects of learning. Yet, How can we effectively Indigenize the curriculum and the university?

Join us for an engaging panel discussion, dialogue, an debate on Indigenizing the University to see how we can move forward to meet these calls at Cape Breton University.
