Indigenization is an ongoing phase of consultation, collaboration, action, and reflection that is focused on: curriculum planning and delivery; services to Indigenous students; employee education; and, policy and planning at Camosun College. Since 2006, the college has engaged in how to create an Indigenized culture and way of doing across all levels of the institution. While there have been empowering champions and early adopters of Indigenization, we worked within an environment where the priority of Indigenization could shift inadvertently. So, over the past few years, Camosun has worked on developing an Indigenization policy that articulates the commitment and vision of Camosun in its ongoing work of Indigenization across and within all areas of the College. The presenters will identify the opportunities and challenges associated with operationalizing an Indigenization policy, and demonstrate how Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies can Indigenize post-secondary education at the institutional level. Presenters will also engage with participants through guided inquiry on ways Indigenization has reached various levels of public post-secondary and the challenges and opportunities for Indigenous self-determination and reconciliation at our institutions.
