Indigenous Pedagogies

The Indigenous Pedagogies Research Network represents a collaboration between Indigenous and Feminist and GLBT faculty across diverse disciplines in the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice (GRSJ) and Critical Studies in Sexuality (CSIS). While there have been an increasing number of Indigenous content course offerings across faculties, more so in Arts and Education here at UBC, and even a commitment to faculty and student development in raising awareness of indigenous issues, there still remains a large gap in knowledge concerning Indigenous praxis. The fact remains, university studies continue to be dominated by western, scientific and liberal thinking, leaving Indigenous knowledges and learning processes on the periphery. Further, decolonizing efforts cannot be limited to specific programs, but rather seen as complex practices that need to be located across the institution.
