Marie Battiste: "Indigenizing the Academy: Unraveling Key Concepts of Decolonization, Indigenization and Reconciliation"

Moderated by Candace Brunette-Debassige

This session aims to provide an overview of contemporary efforts and promising practices for tackling the key concepts involved in the decolonization of education and its core units of antiracism and anti-oppression and Indigenous resurgence and reconciliation. It will help educators to sort out what are core activities for improving all students’ education and why antiracism, anti-oppression, equity, diversity and inclusion are not enough for reconciliation and decolonization.

Marie Ann Battiste OC is an author and educator working as a professor in Canada at the University of Saskatchewan in the Department of Educational Foundations. From the Potlotek First Nation in Nova Scotia, Battiste is the daughter of Mi’kmaq parents John and Annie Battiste and is one of four children.
