Event description
Dean's Distinguished Lecture Series 3: Sheila Cote-Meek & Taima Moeke-Pickering on Decolonizing and Indigenizing Education in Canada

About this Event

The work of Dr. Sheila Cote-Meek and Dr. Taima Moeke-Pickering explores the complexities of decolonization and indigenization of post-secondary institutions. Seeking to advance critical scholarship on issues including the place of Indigenous epistemologies, knowledges, curriculum, and pedagogy, Decolonizing and Indigenizing Education in Canada aims to build space in the academy for Indigenous peoples and resistance and reconciliation. Their work is built around the two connecting themes of Indigenous epistemologies and decolonizing post-secondary institutions. Aiming to advance and transform the Canadian academy, the professors discuss strategies for shifting power dynamics and Eurocentric perspectives within higher education.
