This conference invites participants to experience and explore approaches, pedagogical practices and inspiring examples for the Indigenization of student learning and educational spaces.

Throughout the day, you will gain insights and learn about resources from Traditional Knowledge Keeper and Anishinaabe Cultural Consultant Kim Wheatley (Shawanaga First Nation); Jasmine Wong, Senior Program Associate for Facing History and Ourselves; Lorrie Gallant (Haudenosaunee Cayuga Nation, Six Nations of the Grand River), storyteller, artist, educator and former Woodland Cultural Centre Education Program Coordinator; Indigenous Education Officers at the Art Gallery of Ontario; and faculty at Pickering College.
