Indigenous Peoples Day Workshop: Decolonizing Education

In an effort to honor tribal communities that inhabited this land, we recognize Indigenous Peoples Day to decolonize the historical narratives, while building awareness about the importance of preserving Native American languages, culture, traditions, and identity.

Decolonizing Education will focus on the importance of cultivating our relationship to the natural world and the true source of life. It will begin with a brief history of how the educational system has served to disconnect us from the land and to bind us to colonial systems and institutions that are inherently unsustainable and self-destructive. The workshop will then explore educational methods that may provide a liberatory alternative. This workshop is for faculty, staff, and graduate students.
