Relationships for Learning
This series of videos has captured the thinking and work that was shared with educators, Elders, and community partners from 44 different school boards who are actively involved in facilitating collaborative inquiries to support all students with a focus on Indigenous learners. The workshops offered this Fall were designed to support the needs of the group that were identified through the work of Dr. Susan Dion and her research team. The sessions were taped to provide others with an opportunity to learn from those who have been involved in Indigenous Focused Collaborative Inquiries.
Learning about Settler Colonialism
In this presentation, Dr. Susan Dion provides a broad strokes history lesson addressing the post-contact relationship between First Nations people and new comers. Drawing on her work as an Indigenous scholar and educator through a series of stories Dion describes how prevailing stories in Canadian society and in Canadian schools impede the teaching of post-contact history in ways that respect Aboriginal experience in all its diversity, pain, resistance, anger and hope.
