Indigenous Education

Moving forward in a good way

The Werklund School of Education has been in the process of decolonizing and Indigenizing education for many years. We acknowledge and extend gratitude to the people, within and outside the academy, who have worked tirelessly to cultivate awareness, knowledge and understanding of Indigenous pedagogies, ways of being and doing, contributions, issues and triumphs.  

The Werklund School’s Indigenous Strategy, entitled Moving Forward in a Good Way, was passed in 2015. It was important for the Indigenous Strategy Task Force to begin this ‘historic’ document with a message of our intention, which is to courageously and humbly progress with integrity, respect and in truth alongside Indigenous peoples to strengthen education for all students.
